Skyview students set national record for fundraising for the Salvation Army.

For the third year in a row, Skyview High School students set a national record for fundraising for the Salvation Army through bell ringing.

Skyview earned first place in the nation for high schools by bringing in a record $19,862 during the 2017 holiday season. Skyview’s Key Club raised $17,975 toward the grand total, which earned the club the national first-place award for Key Clubs. This established Skyview as the Model Club for the Salvation Army and their bell ringing program.

Key Club officers are Douglas Graham, president; Hikaru Abe, vice president; Alex Teipel, web master; Colin Stone, treasurer; Jillian Reyes, secretary; and Jillian Schutz, editor. Their adviser is Elyse Azorr.

The school’s girls’ and boys’ basketball teams also contributed by raising $1,887 toward the grand total. Nicole Christensen and Remi Riley are the girls’ basketball senior leaders. KB Fesehazion, Cole Grossman, Jovon Sewell and Alex Schumacher are the boys’ basketball team leaders.

Skyview also set records in 2015 and 2016.
