Neosho High School students paint their parking spaces to raise money for Project Graduation
NEOSHO, Mo. — Juniors and Seniors at Neosho High School brightened up their parking spaces and raised money for ‘Project Graduation’.
For the past 5 years, the paint-your-space fundraiser has been giving students a creative way to personalize their parking spot.
The students are free to design and paint their parking spot however they like, in exchange for a $30 fee.
All the funds raised from those spots goes into project graduation, which is an after-graduation party designed to keep kids safe in a fun environment. The money is used for food, rental space, and activities.
“It just builds comradery between the students, it helps get them involved in raising the money for their project graduation” said Fundraising committee Chairman, Kerrie Bertrand.
Fundraising efforts for project graduation continue throughout the year. They are hoping to beat last years total of $35,000.
