Senior Project Nets $835
Organized by McConnellsburg High School seniors Courtney DeShong and Whittney Fix for their senior project, the concert raised $835 for three charitable organizations.
Both the ACS and MLAR, a nonprofit animal rescue dedicated to the rescue and placement of abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals, recieved $350.
The remainder of the proceeds - $135- went to the alumni community building.
