Students selling fireworks to fund trip

PRESCOTT – Students from Prescott High School are selling fireworks to help raise money to fund a trip to Greece next March.

According to Amy Cowling, the idea came from Janet Banister, an English teacher at PHS, with Greece selected for its rich history and relative safety. A total of 10 students and five adult sponsors will make the trip, which will cost about $3,200 per student, not counting their spending money.

The idea is to help the students grow by introducing them to new cultures and places. Cowling suggested selling fireworks, having been involved in the sale of them before as a fundraiser.

“We have many other fundraisers in the works and are discussing new ideas every day,” she said. “Our next one will be at Flying Burger in Caddo Valley, where a portion of the purchase will be donated by the business for those who mention the group. We are also looking at doing a gun raffle, and possibly a 5k along with other things when school starts.”

While in Greece, the students will be traveling around, checking out the history and visiting different museums along with different archaeological exhibits and taking a trip to the Parthenon.

“We will be working hard throughout the year to make our way to Greece and all the community support we can get is much appreciated,” she said.

The fireworks stand is located next to the tobacco store on Hwy. 67.
