Outstanding students at Tryon Elementary School have been recognized as Terrific Kids for the month of May.
The Tryon Kiwanis Club sponsors the event, which recognizes students from each classroom for their good citizenship and hard work for the month. Students received a certificate of honor, a pencil and a bumper sticker that identifies their parents’ car as having a “Terrific Kid” in the family.
For two weeks in March, students and staff at Polk County High School came together and raised more than $3,000 to stop hunger throughout the world. On Saturday, students saw their money at work and had the opportunity to package meals that were purchased with their funds. More than 50 students spent two hours and put together packages that will serve more than 10,000 meals.
