NE KS high school class donates money to Ashland fire victims

ASHLAND, Kan. (KWCH) A northeast Kansas high school class traveled to the western part of the state to show their support for victims of the wildfires in Clark County.

Seniors at Axtell High School decided to forgo their senior trip and donate the remaining money in their class fund to families in Ashland who lost their homes in the wildfires.

The class voted unanimously to donate the nearly $2000.00 to the fire victims.

The entire class, along with their sponsor Pam Buessing and Principal Larry Geist, made the five-hour trip on Wednesday. They presented a check to the USD 220 Fire Disaster Fund. The money will then be distributed to families.

The class says it will use a small portion of the funds raised to throw an end of the year pizza party.
