A few months into the job, the community outreach by his students continues to amaze Kewaunee principal Mike Bennett. Clubs and sports teams at the high school get into the act by hosting different events like the football team's trick-or-treating night in the fall and the FFA's upcoming petting zoo. Earlier this week, James Cullen was recognized as a distinguished finalist in the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards for the state of Wisconsin. Cullen helps organize the annual "Weather Warm-Ups Drive" to collect hundreds of jackets, sweaters, and more for needy community members. Bennett says Cullen is just one example of the many students at Kewaunee that balance school, athletics, and volunteer work.
The next example of Kewaunee students giving back will occur on February 11th. That is when the National Honor Society will host a "Dollars for Diapers Drive" during the girls' basketball game against Oconto to support the efforts of the Kewaunee County Public Health Department.
