3. Christmas Tree Sales
4. Organizing Winter Formal (Proceeds went to charity)

During my final year when I was President, I also applied for a $5,000 grant from the Oregon Community Foundation (which no longer exists) who’s goal was to allow students to allow small organizations to apply for grants and to allow students to debate who should receive the money and make cases for why.

I facilitated this project (it was also my Senior Community Service project for Seaside High School) and worked with students in Key Club, eventually dividing the money among in-school groups run by students, and community non-profits.
