As regular readers and LYSers are aware, in December we concluded the PowerWalks Hurricane Relief Challenge. LYS donated a nickel for every PowerWalk completed between August 25, 2017 and December 22, 2017. The final donation total (benefitting Aransas County Independent School District, Monroe County School District, Puerto Rico Department of Education, and U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Education) was $8,400.00. That’s a lot of nickels and a lot of PowerWalks.


We are grateful to every school and educator who participated. Just like votes, every nickel was important. But there were also schools that made a consistent high-level commitment during the entire challenge. I want to recognize these campuses at this time:
