Keachen Abing is the latest recipient of the $500 award from WXOW, SSE Music, and Brenengen Auto. The award money will go toward buying a small screen printing set up. Abing said this will allow students to share their creativity with the community, and will help them dive deeper into extracurricular activities.
Students at 7 Rivers Community High School will be able to create unique, printed projects thanks to the Tools for Schools Award.
"We're a new school so it's our second year in existence, and to have this as a resource to provide students with another opportunity to create amazing products was super exciting," said Abing
