MILTON — In 2007, students in Mary DeLong’s first-grade class at Baugher Elementary School raised $1,300 to help build the Milton School in Cambodia.
Today, the students are in eighth-grade. An anonymous donor recently purchased new Team Cambodia T-shirts for each of the students who were in DeLong’s class when those funds were raised.
The T-shirts are available for the community purchase for $15. To order a T-shirt, contact Mike Conn at the Milton Area High School, 570-742-7611.
The high school’s Team Cambodia effort is now working to raise $4,500 to further assist the Milton School in Cambodia, which was built in Cambodia in 2008 thanks to $50,000 raised through the Milton Area School District’s Team Cambodia.
The school in Cambodia is now in need of the funding to continue its English, computer and Internet programming.
Eighth-grade Milton Middle School students to receive the shirts are: Gregory Fleck, Olivia Rearick, Rachelle Campbell, Noah Gemberling, Justin Gaugler, Philip Davis, Marissa Williams, Alyssa Byers, Joel Yoder, Brandon Feltman, Dylan Freeman and Kellan Guinn-Bailey.
Checks to support the Milton School in Cambodia can be made out to Team Cambodia and mailed to The Milton Area High School, c/o Mike Conn, 700 Mahoning St., Milton, PA 17847.
