Fundraising for student activities in a small community can be a challenge, but the students at Sisters High are up for that challenge.
Recently kids pulled some knapweed in an industrial park that raised money for various athletics, and that money was also tax deductible for the park owner because it complied with a statute to get the weeds out.
Athletic Director Tim Roth says he is working on creating a student advisory group that hopefully will generate good ideas for fundraising and problem solving. "What we're planning on doing this year is having a group of kids, you can call them an ambassador's group, like a student athlete from every group. We’re going to meet once a month and just talk about the concerns and issues that they have and to talk about their budgets, and talk about creative ways for them to raise funds."
Roth says one of his missions t to get the kids out working in the community, both for fundraising and to volunteer for programs, to show how appreciative they are that the community supports them so much in this small community.
