Star 94 and Delta Community Credit Union are present our Grand Prize Winner for the 2022 $15,000 give back give away with Delta Community Credit Union. This year's grand prize winner is Big Shanty Intermediate School in Kennesaw, Georgia. 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students were inspired by books they read and coupled it with their school wide initiative to 'Make Your Mark'.
Students created service projects like Birthday In A Bag, Adopt a Senior, beautifying their school and more. When asked about the Birthday In A Bag, Big Shanty's Principal, Dr. Luscre, shared that each grade level worked together to bring different items to make children displaced from their homes feel loved and appreciated on their birthdays. The bags included cake mix, icing, candles, streamers and just about anything you could think of for an awesome birthday party.
Dr. Luscre also shared how proud she was of her students for taking the time to adopt seniors into their school community by sending books, letters and treats to our friends and families in nursing home communities to show our appreciate and love for them. Other projects include making tie blankets and donating them to the local police to help the homeless population in the community and beautifying their library.
Big Shanty Intermediate school won the grand prize of $10,000. When asked what they plan to spend the money on the students and Dr. Luscre shared that while nothing has officially been decided for their next service project, but they are hoping to tackle an international project. Delta Community Credit Union and Star 94 congratulate the amazing students at Big Shanty Intermediate school for all the wonderful work they've done in the community.
