The students at Madison Rural Elementary have outdone themselves. In their third annual food drive, the school collected 1,657 items for the Madison County Food Pantry. In 2005, the total was 1,400. In 2006, the total was 1,289. The project serves not only as community outreach, but also as a math, art and writing lesson. Over the week-long collection, students chart their progress, calculate the number of ounces of food (15,924 this year), write about the project, and decorate paper turkeys. Students in Tereca Rubel’s first-grade class show a small sampling of the food collected: (front row, from left) Skylar White, Oshzina Colwell, Destinee Powell, Connor Hunter, Janice Snyder; (second row) Kloee Whitaker, Allison Vaughn, Bradan Mast, Rachel Guiette, Rachel Birchfield, Brian Cash; (back row) Anthony Kimbler, Tim Gillian, Hunter Nichols, Chase Mouradian, Mason Howard, Nathan Holbrook, Joseph Siler and Zachary Holland.
