DECA students cook up funds for troops

By Rainey Coffin

The melting snow and dwindling ice made it easier for Coeur d’Alene High School DECA students to get together last Saturday and serve breakfast for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Students served pancakes, eggs and ham to raise money for seriously injured troops and promote awareness of their needs.

According to the high school newsletter, DECA student Allison Legasa said, “I think that it went really well, but due to the snow, I think that it sent us back a bit.”

Students have raised $500 for the project and will continue to raise funds, selling grilled cheese sandwiches during the school lunch hour.

Dropout prevention will be topic

You’ve heard it before: Don’t be a fool, stay in school.

On Jan. 30, the Idaho Dropout Summit is holding an informational conference, “Keeping the Promise: Idaho’s Summit on Dropout Prevention,” and is open to parents and kids. The event will be held at the Nampa Civic Center, 311 S. Third St., from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The conference will examine the reasons why hundreds of Idaho students drop out of school every year and will include national and regional experts, speaking on how specific workshops, organizations, and business can help students stay in school, graduate, and be successful in their lives.

The cost for the seminar is $15 per person, free for youth, and there are scholarships available for adults interested in attending but unable to pay.
