On Friday, April 16, three hundred Beach Channel High School Students joined millions of youth across the country in performing volunteer work on National Youth Service Day. Beach Channel High School Principal, Dr. David Morris and Music Radio Station Power 105.1 sponsored a kick-off celebration held in the Beach Channel Auditorium on Friday. Each of the 32 groups of students participating in National Youth Service Day were called to the stage and applauded for their community service work. Students also received a t-shirt and CD as a special gift from Power 105. This year marked the 16th annual National Youth Service Day and Beach Channel High School students came out in full force to serve their school and community. For example:

Ms. Murray and the Beach Channel Cooking Club held a bake sale that raised $95 to support the American Cancer Society.

Ms. Ferguson and the Beach Channel Vocational Sewing Club raised $150 for the Lymphoma Society.

Senior, Michael Bradley, and his group headed a letter writing campaign petitioning our state senators to pass legislation this session to increase the minimum wage.
