Valley retirees Mary Kay France, Patty Jansen, Ann Mack, Vicky Poole and Linda Bergeson helped provide 15 turkeys and hams to students at Valley for the Thanksgiving holiday.

A group of retirees from Valley High School have partnered with the Hy-Vee on Grand to help provide Thanksgiving turkeys and hams to students at Valley.

The Valley retirees collected donations among their peers and retired principal and current School Board member Dr. Vicky Poole along with retired teacher Kathie Lutter delivered 15 turkeys, 15 hams and 30 packages of rolls to Valley. Along with an anonymous donation of stuffing, canned vegetables and other side dishes, the group was able to provide a full Thanksgiving meal to students.

The project was organized through Valley Campus Monitor Sam Kranovich. Associate Principal Dr. Erika Cook oversees the Booster Pak program, Tiger Pride Supplies and other service initiatives at Valley.
