"Touch of Class": Stettin Council Cats

Posted:

The Stettin Student Council, or "Council Cats" as they're better known, conduct their business Wednesday mornings before school.

With a juice in hand, they tackle their agenda.

The biggest issue at hand this week? The upcoming Relay for Life.

With a month before the big event, the council and the Relay committee have already done some aggressive fundraising.

"We've just been really collecting all the donations we can, we've been using the internet, we've been selling luminaria bags," says Student Council President Dayne Hagedorn.

"I send out letters to my family and all of my friends," says Student Council member Gabby Michlig. "They usually send letters back with a donation."

In addition, students have come up with a campaign to raise money from their fellow classmates.

"We also have a dum dum sale at school. Our slogan is cancer is a dum dum."

Their efforts have paid off so far. They have already raised more than $2500, and they hope to double that amount.

Even though the Council Cats have a lot of hard work ahead of them, they don't see it that way.

"The best thing is just collecting with your friends because we don't go around in our neighborhoods all alone. We go around with friends and family so we just have a fun time."

For the fourth consecutive year, the council will join wide array of teams at John Muir Middle School in Wausau.

The best part for these students? Watching the survivor lap.

"It makes me feel really good when I see a survivor, because I know that they tried to survive and they did."

And for their devotion to ensure there are more cancer survivors, the Stettin Council Cats show they have a Touch of Class.
