KGHS raises funds for heart month

“February for the Heart” is the saying of the month at King George High School. Students and staff will show their support of the American Heart Association through fundraising and sweet activities.

The Leadership Council, which consists of presidents and advisers from all the school’s clubs, classes and organizations, came up with the idea. They want to promote the American Heart Association and support loved ones affected by heart disease by raising $1,000.

On Friday, Feb. 1, everyone on campus is asked to wear red to promote hearth health, especially in women. From Feb. 6-14, the National Honor Society will sell rose-grams and candy-grams that will be delivered on Valentine’s Day. From Feb. 15-22, faculty and staff will participate in a “Shower me with flowers” challenge. The person who raises the most money for the heart association will be showered with flowers and receive a dozen roses. The winning person also will be able to deliver a pie in the face to Principal Cliff Conway, or designate someone else to do it.

More information about the activities is available from Dee Strauss, who can be reached at or 540/775-3535, ext. 2103.
