The Greenville High School Student Council is conducting a special fundraiser during February.
Council Secretary Rebecca Laesch told WGEL the student council holds a fundraiser each year. The council members share ideas for a charity to raise funds for. This year, they chose Eden’s Glory.
The council holds a “friendly first hour competition”. Students bring in money each day and the student council provides a complimentary breakfast to the first hour class that raises the most money.
