Tuesday the 19th, was a great day for Red Lodge High School students! Volunteer hours were announced and the students with the most hours were recognized and received gift certificates to some of their favorite places around town. An ice cream party was held for all high school students since there was such fantastic IMG_20150519_095731648volunteer participation this year. Just from this past semester 120 students were able to rack up 1090 hours, bringing up the total amount of volunteer hours for this year to 2250 hours. These awesome volunteers had a significant impact on our community this year; let’s hope they keep up the good work and complete even more hours next year! Thank you to all students who participated, and a special thank you to the students who completed more than 50 hours, including; Jill Purcell, Kendall Prather, Kylie Kelly, Emily Johnson and Laura Nearpass.
