---- — Tri-Central students raise money for Tippecanoe schools

SHARPSVILLE — Students at Tri-Central Middle School are reaching out to their peers at Tippecanoe School Corp., who were impacted by the Nov. 17 tornado.

Seventh-grade teacher Seth Tripp said his students came up with the idea of starting a fundraiser to benefit Tippecanoe Schools. Southwestern Middle School and Mintonye Elementary School saw the most damage in that district.

“What they’re really in need of is new P.E. and recess equipment because the tornado hit their gym,” Tripp said.

Through Dec. 20, students will collect money during lunch, and community members interested in donating can make checks out to Tri-Central Community Schools and drop them off at the school office. Gym equipment also will be accepted.
