In dark times, any light is welcome. Winnebago High School’s senior officers know that well, so it should come as no surprise when they acted after tragedy struck Rockford Lutheran with the passing of student Payton Parrotte.

With the help of advisors and the generous students attending WHS, Senior Class Officers Ethan McDougall, Madisyn Gearhart, Caitlin Hamilton and Krista Franklin were able to collect donations to put towards an established donation fund at Rockford Lutheran. They travelled from table to table at lunch collecting any loose change or spare dollars they could. The final total for all donations was over $120, which they personally delivered to the family of Payton on Tuesday, Sept. 6. Not only did they deliver the money, the officers also met with and had lunch with Dani Justice and Hope Parrotte, spending over an hour bonding over pizza. The family was extremely grateful, and so were the officers. They appreciated the time given to them, and for the experience and results that came with meeting and helping the Parrotte family.
