BY PA'I-FI CARPENTER The students at Lovell High School raised $6,411, which they plan to donate to the Wyoming chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The state chapter makes about 30 wishes a year come true for children in Wyoming who have serious, and oftentimes life-threatening, medical conditions. The effort was spearheaded by the school's student council and involved a number of events including a barbecue dinner, a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction of gift baskets, a bake sale and numerous student activities, including a wishing well competition, selling stars and other fun contests on campus. The students raised $952 from the barbecue dinner alone. The dinner, which was held on Feb. 10, was hosted by the school's FFA Club. The club's advisor Wil Zollman cooked the pulled pork for the event and students served the meal. Information about the Make-A-Wish program was also presented. According to student advisor Katie Hernandez, the state of Wyoming raises more donations for Make-A-Wish per capita than any other state in the nation. She said some schools have managed to raise as much as $80,000. She said the students at LES may host other activities but plans have not been finalized yet. Other on-campus clubs like the FCCLA and Skills USA also contributed to the ef- fort. The students will be recognized for their efforts at the Wyoming Association of Stu- dent Councils convention. + Brigham and Julie Davidson, Hopkin to wed March 14 Matthew and Marga- ret Davidson of Burlington have announced the mar- riage of their daughter Ju- lie Davidson to Brigham Brimhall Hopkin, son of Kirk and Angela Hopkin of Lovell.
