Lee Co. High students lend a hand in recovery

March 14, 2007

Lee County-  A south Georgia high school is pitching in to help storm victims. Lee County High School students are collecting canned goods and cash donations.

Students in Don Van Oteghem's class filled an entire van with goods that were sent to Americus this week. High School Principal Kevin Dowling is impressed by the student's response to tragedy.

"They're teenagers, they're going to make mistakes and they're going to do silly things every now and then, but they really do a tremendous job you know when someone is in need. I really am proud of the response that our school generally gives to the communities in need when something like this happens," said Kevin Dowling, Lee County High School Principal.

The high school's drum line will hold a drum-a-thon this Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Wal-Mart with the proceeds going toward the cleanup in Americus, Baker County and Enterprise, Alabama.
