PLAS is a temporary drop-off point for all who want to contribute – churches, organizations, schools and individuals.Thursday is the deadline for all donations. A truck will leave on Friday to deliver the donated items to a specified location in North Carolina. Rather than roll toilet paper, the juniors and seniors were challenged to donate that toilet paper and other supplies to the North Carolina Relief fund.Grice said the PLAS juniors and seniors were eager to participate in the humanitarian effort for the hurricane victims in North Carolina.“The students were challenged to bring supplies, from bottled water and paper products to toothpaste and pet foods,” Grice said. “The junior and senior classes were very competitive but they were also aware of the devastation in North Carolina and the great need of its citizens. Each class wanted to win but they also wanted to help meet the needs there in North Carolina.” Sponsored Content Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Latest Stories Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article The Pike Liberal Art School Junior Senior War was waged this Homecoming without one roll of toilet paper being thrown. Instead, the classes competed to see which class could collect the most toilet paper and other needed items for donation to the North Carolina Relief Fund. The juniors won the highly competitive event. Pictured from left: Trevor Bryan, Cole McWhorter, Shelby Renfroe, Mary Ramage, Sarah Elizabeth Calhoun, Anna Jordan, Peyton Sasser and Porter Lankford. The annual Pike Liberal Arts Homecoming “Junior-Senior War” turned humanitarian this year. Rather than toilet paper each other’s homes and lawns, the students made donations to the North Carolina Relief fund.Angie Grice, PLAS assistant headmaster, said each year at Homecoming the Junior-Senior War is waged with the rolling of toilet paper – whether houses, lawns or cars. But this year, the school administration found a way to wage war that would have far-reaching positive benefits.  As with any war, to the victors go the spoils, so the PLAS junior class had the satisfaction of having won. And to their surprise, the spoils of victory were even greater than first thought. Members of the PLAS Foundation Board decided to donate funds for the students to spend a day at Six Flags in Atlanta.However, the senior class won the best design display and contributed greatly to the cause, so the board decided to also make the spoils of victory available to the seniors.Grice said after the Junior-Senior War ended on Homecoming afternoon, the opportunity to participate in the North Carolina Relief effort was opened to the student body, from K4 through the 10th grade.“We wanted all students to have the opportunity to be involved,” Grice said. “At PLAS we encourage our students to be community servants. This relief effort is an opportunity to go beyond our own community to help victims of a natural disaster.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… By The Penny Hoarder By Jaine Treadwell Trojans run away with a 45-21 win over Coastal Carolina The Troy Trojans returned home after a two-game road trip and gave the fans a reason to celebrate with a… read more Published 3:00 am Tuesday, October 2, 2018 Book Nook to reopenlast_img
