Pennies for Patients Campaign
Questa High School Student Senate is hosting their annual Pennies for Patients campaign. They are asking for help from students and community members. To donate, please drop by any of our schools to support a great cause.
•An estimated 957,902 people in the United States (US) are living with, or are in remission from, leukemia, NHL, Hodgkin’s lymphoma or myeloma.
•The funds we raise will support lifesaving research and local patient services.
•Every year the Questa community collects over $1,000 through our school district’s efforts! Pocket change makes a huge difference!
Please contact your Senate and Council members for more info.
Congratulations to Carlos Amador, junior at Questa High School for winning the Kit Carson Electric Government-In-Action Youth Tour. This contest was open to all full time junior students within the KCEC service territory. Each applicant submitted a 750 word essay on energy efficiency. Carlos will receive an all-expense paid trip to our nation's capital to learn about government issues pertaining to rural America and understand the importance of local electric cooperatives. Congratulations Carlos!!
Questa Eco-Cats took 1st place at the Regional Envirothon competition. For some that don’t know what Envirothon is, it is a hands-on environmental problem-solving competition for high school-aged students. Participating teams complete training and testing in five natural resource categories: i.e., soils/land-use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife, and current environmental issues.
We are really proud of our students! Thank you to the Envirothon sponsors: Ms. Erica Zito and Mrs. Amber Benavidez. Great Job!!!
