Leadership students at Hawthorne Elementary, pictured with Bonnie Gourley and Madison Marcotte, spearheaded a water drive for residents of Flint, Michigan.



Last week Hawthorne Elementary students collected 77,029 ounces of water, which was delivered to The College of Social Work at The Ohio State University.  There, it was combined with donations from pupils on campus and then driven up to Flint, Michigan, where drinking water has made headlines after it was found to be contaminated.

 Michael Broderick’s 5th grade classroom collected the most water with 11,520 ounces.  Coming in second was Kathleen Waltman’s 2nd grade class with 11,136 ounces.  Third place winner was Margaret Wallace’s fourth grade class with 10,240 ounces.
