There are rooms in Centennial that most students don’t go into. There are some offices that as a senior, I never knew existed.
As the semester comes to a close, Centennial’s Student Council continues to help out around the school and the community. They had great success with homecoming week and the dance in October, but their work wasn’t done just yet. A couple weeks ago, they participated in a food drive along with other clubs throughout the school. The members jobs were to bring in as many peanut butter jars as possible to donate towards the Eastern Illinois Food Bank.
For the next two weeks (December 1st to the 12th), from 5-7, they will be helping out the community by bell ringing for the Salvation Army. They will be located at the County Market on the corner of Kirby and Duncan at the main entrance. Student Council member Faith Ayodele tells the Centinal, “Bell ringing is something fun we can do with our friends, but it’s also great because you know it’s going towards a good cause.”
The Centinal will catch back up with Student Council next semester for information on Vice Versa and more.
