Students Donate to Japan Earthquake Relief

America’s attention has been focused recently on the outbreak of tornados and the flooding along the Mississippi River, but Lowman Hill Elementary students haven’t forgotten the people of Japan. That country continues to deal with the misery caused by an earthquake and tsunami that struck in March.

“We had boxes in each home room and the kids donated pennies, nickels and dimes since the earthquake in Japan,” said Lowman Hill Principal Russ Hutchins. Today, Joselyn Villalobos, student body president, presented a representative of the Red Cross a check for $83.53 to be used to help the people of Japan.
