It is one of the most exciting seasons of the school year.  The best part of the Gibbs Eagles’ season may have come during the Gibbs High School (GHS) Homecoming 2020 activities.  GHS Principal Jason Webster shared about one of the many “good things happening in our school and community.”

Four outstanding GHS homecoming candidates raised a huge sum of money—over $10, 000!    They wanted to donate the funds to a worthwhile cause and did not have to look far to find one.  The candidates decided on the Corryton Hospitality Pantry (CHP) just up the road in the Corryton Community.

“The Corryton Hospitality Pantry is proud to be the beneficiary of this generous donation from the Gibbs High School Homecoming Queen Candidates and all of the many contributors to their efforts,” CHP Coordinator Bob Martin said.  “This donation will provide a very large quantity of food for pantry patrons.  All of us, especially the recipients of assistance from the community pantry, have certainly experienced a difficult and uncertain year.  Many thanks as well to Gibbs High School Principal, Mr. Jason Webster, for supporting this special event,” Martin added.  Focus readers may recall that Bob Martin is also known as the retired principal of Corryton Elementary School.

Even during a pandemic, these young people at GHS are making a difference.  Way to go, Eagles!
