Student leadership raises funds for local hospital

Braving early-morning fatigue and a biting winter wind, the Student Leadership class sold Kids Day newspapers to benefit Valley Children’s Hospital on March19. Lauren Taylor, ’03, organized the leadership class’s participation.

“I saw an ad asking people to participate in selling papers on TV,” Taylor said. “I thought it would be a good outreach for Student Leadership, and its good for the community since all the money goes to Valley Children’s Hospital.”

Leadership advisor Chris Schultz felt that Taylor’s idea was a good one, and agreed to allow the Leadership class to participate in the citywide Kids Day newspaper sale.

“This semester in Leadership we are trying to be more conscious of doing things beyond our school community,” Schultz said. “It is important as leaders to be doing things outside of school, and I felt that participating in Kids Day was a good way for us to reach out to the community.”

The students who participated had various ways they tried to sell their papers. Attracting cars passing by proved an arduous task for some. Other students found it easy to sell their papers, by employing attention-grabbing methods.

“My partner and I exhibited our newspapers like we were Vana White on Wheel of Fortune,” Taylor said. “Lots of people stopped to buy papers from us, and one guy said that we were selling our papers better than anyone else out there.”

Despite their various success rates, all the participants had an enjoyable time, and felt good about helping out Valley Children’s Hospital.

“I had a great time selling papers,” Katie Ettner, ’05, said. “Even though it was very cold outside and I was really tired, I still had fun, and I was glad to help out for a good cause like the hospital.”

Schultz rewarded all the students who participated with a free breakfast at Country Waffles.

Any students interested in participating in the next Kids Day should contact Valley Children’s Hospital for more information.
