The WSHS BioClub completed its community service project by inviting the Director of the Greenwood Humane Society to speak at their last meeting in March. The students initiated a community wide effort to collect needed supplies for the humane society, and the response from the community was phenomenal. Collection containers were placed in the Ware Shoals High School library, which also serves as the community library, and the students solicited items from faculty and students. When the Director of the humane society finished her presentation, the students presented to her all the goods that they had collected. She was surprised and thrilled with what the students had done--she was not aware of their efforts before her presentation! Several students are now volunteering their time to the humane society, and the BioClub will adopt this as an ongoing project.

The BioClub students also sold shirts for Earth Day as a fund raising project. They sold over $500 of shirts and raised a lot of money for the BioClub. The money will go towards the construction of the rescue turtle habitat on campus. Look for pictures of their shirts at a later date.

Till next time--George
