The Scottsburg Kiwansi Club hosted a party for twenty-four third graders at Vienna Finley Elementary School for making the BUG Honor Roll. BUG, which stands for Bring Up Grades, is an academic incentive program to help students improve their grades. To make the BUG Honor Roll, a student must improve at least one grade in at least one subject and not go down in any others. Students who make the BUG Honor Roll receive a certificate identifying the subject(s) they improved, a BUG T-Shirt the first time they make the BUG Honor Roll, snacks and prizes. BUG Honor Roll students in Mrs Dulaney’s class are Shelby Crone, William Goble, Darryn Morris, Presley Stidham, Hudson Garten, Celia Hutton, Regan Kiefer, Jules Paris, Jarred Richey and Michael Wolf. BUG Honor Roll students in Ms Lucas’ class are Porter Banister, Raney Huffman, Brianna Leake, Tyler Roberts and Kylie Strong. BUG Honor Roll students in Ms Thomas’ class are Dakota Burton, Tessia Coomer, Charlie Garcia, Kathern Hancock, Jaiden Jones, Jarin Luttrell, Isiah Roll, Arriana Tungett and Alan Wilson. BUG is made possible by the sponsorship of Kiwanis Corporate member Austin Tri Hawk. Congratulations to these outstanding students.
The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club hosted their annual Spaghetti Dinner to raise money for Riley Children’s Hospital at the Scottsburg United Methodist Church. This year the focus for Riley was to help with the Three Wishes Program to improve the early detection and treatment of early childhood development issues such as autism and developmental delay. Dr Swigonski from Riley Children’s Hospital and a Professor of Pediatrics at Indiana University’s Medical School had visited Scottsburg a few weeks earlier to give a couple of presentations to the medical community and to child care providers, teachers and volunteers who work with young children such as CASA and CRADLE. The community support for this effort has been nothing short of outstanding. Congratulations for making this spaghetti dinner the best in memory of any of our Kiwanis members. The Kiwanis cooked spaghetti, and the SHS Key Club and SMS Builders Club bused tables and made baked goods to sell as dessert with all proceeds going to Riley Children’s Hospital. With your help we are able to donate $965 to Riley. The proceeds will help Riley and the Indiana District of Kiwanis ensure screening kids are available to communities all over the State of Indiana and that treatment and educational materials are available in all our communities. Thank you all for your generosity and support! Pictured are some of our guests that evening enjoying the spaghetti dinner, Sam Everett from the SHS Key Club washing dishes and outstanding chef, Chris Wakeman in the kitchen. Thank you again for your outstanding support of Riley Children’s Hospital and the kids in our community who will benefit from this program.
