Winning students collect their prize - a rock concert

January 09, 2001

Students at Arundel High School have received their prize of a rock concert for winning a food-drive contest sponsored by an area radio station.

The band Good Charlotte performed Friday for hundreds of students in the Gambrills school's auditorium as their prize in the WHFS-FM Capital Area Food Drive.

The Arundel High Key Club, with help from its club counterparts at several other schools, ran a campaign that collected 4.5 tons of nonperishable items during six school days in early November. The volunteer community service organization is sponsored by the Crofton Kiwanis.

Faculty adviser Diane Holmes said "good communication" and the students' enthusiasm were the main factors in the response that won the contest.

Holmes credited student Christine Marston with suggesting the drive after hearing a challenge on the radio station to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank. She said students Heather Johnson and Danny Mays, the club's president, spearheaded a speedy organizational effort.

Key Club members from the other schools who helped were also invited to the concert.
