Beaufort High sophomores Tyler Clancy and Sarah Holloway wanted to “make a difference” to their fellow man, and spearheaded a STOP HUNGER NOW event at Beaufort High School. Members of the BHS Interact Club, National Honor Society, ROTC and students from Riverview Elementary School were on hand to pack over 10,000 freeze dried meals that will be sent to Haiti. The school was so proud of the students who think beyond themselves, are interested in giving of their time and effort for the good of others, and prepare to take their place as global citizens.

BRIDGES PREPARATORY

Bridges Preparatory School’s fourth, fifth and sixth graders traveled to Atlanta to experience The World of Coke, an overnight adventure at The Georgia Aquarium, and a backstage tour of the CNN studios, where students watched a live broadcast and had a behind-the-scenes look at live news. Students, chaperons, and teachers were treated to the trip of a lifetime by having the aquarium to themselves for one night.
