The Distinguished Student Program is sponsored by the North Dakota High School Activities Association. The goal of the program is to recognize deserv- ing young people who are the "backbone" of interscholastic activities, not necessarily the leader, but the individual whose participation in high school activities strengthens the program for participants, the school, and community. Candidates must be in their junior year of school, participate in at least one NDHSAA sponsored activity. The student must be a good citizen and role model to peers as well as a contributor to the community. Jorge Eligio exhibits all of these characteristics.

Such a time has come upon us once again. We as a faculty and student body among others will soon be spon- soring a fundraiser for the Rocio Rayon family of Park River. Rocio and her children, Daniella and Dennis Castillo recently lost their home and belongings to a house fire. A spaghetti supper/bake sale benefit will take place on Tuesday, April 28 from 5:00 - 7:00 PM in the high school commons. Take Out orders will be available from 5:00 - 6:30. To place an order call 284- 7164. Take Out orders can be picked up at the school or they can be delivered to your door if in Park River. Funds donated to this ben- efit will offset some of their loss- es. Please be part of our commu- nity and attend this fundraising endeavor. In the event you would like to contribute to this worthy cause but cannot make it to the benefit supper, please consider dropping off a donation at First United Bank or mail it to the bank (503 Briggs Ave.) in Park River. Checks should be made out to the Castillo Fire Relief Fund. Supplemental funds will be pro- vided by the Walsh County Thrivent Chapter. And although the project is being sponsored by the school, there are other organizations and people in our commumty who are also helping out with this worthy cause. We would like to thank those individuals and groups for once again stepping up and show- ing what caring people in a caring community can do for one anoth- er. A special thank you goes out to the Park River Volunteer Fire Department along with Bruce Heggen for taking care of the food preparation. And without taking the risk of leaving anyone out, we would just' like to thank all the people who have volunteered to help irt one way or another in not only this fundraiser but ones that have taken place in our communi- ty in the past. And in closing, perhaps the best thing someone can do for another is to reach out and give to those when they are in need. We encourage all of you to lend a hand to Rocio and her children next Tuesday night.
