Students Lead Charitable Drive

It’s back to school for hundreds of 6th-, 7th-, and 8th- graders at nearby Centennial Campus Magnet Middle School (CCMMS). The MSA Class of 2015, continuing a student tradition, sought to lend a helping hand to our Centennial Campus neighbors by holding a charitable drive to donate school supplies—from pencils and notebooks to backpacks to USB data storage devices—everything schoolchildren need to be productive, but cannot always afford on a tight family budget. Many thanks to all of the MSA student volunteers who gave generously of their time in the collection effort, and our sincere gratitude to everyone who made a donation!
