Centertown students, from left, Madison Hollis, Jaden Smartt and Katy Mae Cantrell admire the wonderful and personalized items submitted by the various classes for auction.
A whopping $45,200 was raised at Centertown School in activities relating to its annual Fall Festival. When the grand prize drawing is $3,000 folks tend to snatch up the donation tickets, which were priced at $1 each. Students, parents and faculty members secured 30,000 tickets, with lucky Donna Mathis being drawn for the prize.“The idea for the large grand prize came from members of our Parent Involvement Committee,” said co-chair and teacher Lisa Carden.
