IMG_8576Funds Raised For Youth Summit
The Queer and Allied Youth Summit would like to thank the six teachers who graciously volunteered to get a pie thrown in their face to raise money for a big summit and prom in May. Mr. Bromley, Mr. Chater, Ms. Howe, Mr. Parker, Ms. Squier and Mr. Tillitson were the brave volunteers. MHS students voted with their dollars to see Mr. Tillitson win the honor! We raised $152, which will go to support the statewide Queer and Allied Youth Summit which MHS and U32 are co-hosting on May 14. Over 200 queer and allied youth from all over Vermont will gather in Montpelier. On their behalf, thanks for your generosity and support!
