This year the Rock Springs High School Student Council continued to show their support and commitment to helping the Make A Wish Foundation by raising a grand total of $27,943.50. This year the Council wanted to reach out to the community so they hosted several new events in an attempt to reach out to those who may not have been previously involved. Some of these events included an all-community volleyball tournament, parent prom, a kid’s carnival and kid’s candy stroll, and a lip sync battle. They were also able to reach out to local businesses to host events like laser tag at Legendary Laser Tag, Zumba at the Recreation Center, food nights at several restaurants around town, and a special Alex and Ani Make A Wish jewelry sale at Reynold’s Jeweler. The council continues to be amazed at the support they receive from the community during this event and they recognize that they would not be able to do such amazing things without all of their help.
One thing that the Council felt strongly about this year was the goal to work together with Green River High School to make this a unified community event. They decided that businesses and families who have investment in both communities shouldn’t feel like they have to choose which school to donate to, especially when both are working together towards a common cause. They felt strongly that as a student-represented government they needed to reach out to other students from this area to support one another. With this in mind, they decided to donate their entire earnings to help the Green River Student Council reach their goal of $36,000 and to show them they are invested in working together to help make wishes come true.
