Royal Valley Students Gain Commission Support

The quest continues for a group of 8th grade Royal Valley Middle School students seeking monies needed to fund their successful highway renaming project. 

Gaining legislative approval to designate a three mile portion of K-79, leading to Circleville, as the Barnes Brothers Memorial Highway, their teacher, Nate McAlister, says the goal is to gain 2-thousand-280-dollars for the purchase of signage and up-keep(Play Audio :12 seconds) 

McAlister, and the seven students, took their goal to the Jackson County Commission this week; and, once the Commissioners heard their plea, 500-dollars was allocated to the project. 

Now, student Jenna Thurman says she and her fellow students have their sites set on upcoming fund-raising events(Play Audio :20 seconds) 

Order forms for the shirts, which bear images of the Barnes Brothers, can be found at the  Farmers State Bank, in Circleville, and on the Royal Valley Middle School website.
