Taylor County students studied Public Service Announcements in Mrs. Fleurdelys’ English II class at TCHS. TCHS freshmen Maddie Riley, Morgan Melton, Emily Watkins, and Alaina Gwilliam, and TCMS 8th grader Peyton McCubbin took it a step further by following through with an idea they had to raise money for the local animal shelter. They baked goods and sold them at Wings Pizza N Things before Christmas. The students raised $122 for the Taylor County Animal Shelter. They called the shelter and asked what items they were most in need of and then went shopping to purchase the items for the shelter.
