Jonesboro school raises over $7,000 for Make-A-Wish


JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -  A group of Region 8 kids have been working for a month to help others.

Students at the International Studies Magnet School in Jonesboro gathered Thursday for a special assembly.

They were there to discover the total amount of money they managed to raise for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. They raised $7,110.

Make-A-Wish Campaign Co-Chair Marya Langford says these students really learned a lot while raising money. "This teaches children to give back.  You have to explain to them.  These children, all of these kids know exactly what they're raising money for.  They see it.  We talk about it.  It's very exciting."

But all that hard work didn't come without a reward. The class that raised the most money got to throw a pie in the Vice Principal's face.

Ms. Wheelis' class at the International Studies school were the winners.

We want to say GR8 job to all the students at the school for working hard to raise money for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
