Ms. Rhona Hammond, MOID/Special needs teacher and Ms. Virginia Smith, Beta Club Sponsor joined forces to raise money for the purchase of a handicapped van for a family with two wheelchair-bound brothers. What began with an effort by Ms. Hammond’s MOID class ballooned to include the entire school’s staff and students. They raised over $1100 for the effort. The Kennesaw-Acworth Lions Club is working to raise $40,000 to help this family purchase a conversion van. The Lions extend their thanks and gratitude for the hard work and compassion shown by Awtrey Middle School in their efforts to help this family.
