CASSTOWN — “Every coin counts in a penny war,” says senior Hannah Wilson.

Wilson and her fellow Miami East-MVCTC FFA Chapter recently sponsored a Penny War with all of the earnings being equally split between the March of Dimes and Children’s Hospital of Dayton.

Members of the Financial Committee wanted a creative way to raise money for two of their favorite charities that would include all 72 FFA members. Committee members involved in the organization, counting, and tallying of results were Cameron Coomes, Daniel Everett, Carly Gump, Stephanie Millhouse, Alyssa Westgerdes and Hannah Wilson.

During the month of March, $337.18 was raised amongst all six Agricultural Education classes at Miami East High School. Pennies were positive points and all other coins and dollars were negative points. The class earning the highest average per student was fourth period, a class of Livestock Science (junior and senior) students.

The winning class received a pizza party compliments of Farm Credit Services of Mid-America in Versailles.
