Thursday, April 14, Valley Central Middle School’s National Junior Honor
Society hosted the latest in a series of “Paint Nights”
to benefit programs in the school. At Paint Night, members of the Valley
Central community learn how to paint a particular scene under the instruction
of VCMS art teachers Kathy Foti, Patty Behr and Ashley Nozell. Members of the National Junior Honor Society
provide dessert and help supply the painters with whatever help or support they
need throughout the night.
The schools’ Paint Nights have benefited the Valley Central
Back Pack Snack Attack program, which provides snacks and food to Valley
Central students each weekend. The nights have also benefited the National
Junior Honor Society to help defray the cost of the organization’s trips and
other activities. To date, VCMS’ Paint Nights have raised $4,000 in monetary
and food donations.
