LOGANTON — The Sugar Valley Rural Charter School chapter of the FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) recently held a drive to collect donations of water and sports drinks for area fire companies.

“We chose the three closest fire companies to us — Sugar Valley, Lamar Township, and Nippenose Valley,” said senior, Isaiah Nearhoof, who headed the committee which organized the drive.

“FBLA Chapters do something to benefit a charity each year, and with everything going on in the world right now, we figured who deserves help more than our local fire companies. We have members of our school, and our FBLA, who are in these three fire companies, so it just made sense and touches home,” he continued, adding that he is a member of Nippenose Valley Fire Company and is EMS certified himself.

Eleventh grade student, Gwynnevere Showers, whose parents are career EMS workers, added, “we are also celebrating National EMS Week, so this works out very well that we could deliver the water and drinks this week.”

Sugar Valley Fire Company truck captain, Donald Laubach, thanked the students as he shook Nearhoof’s hand. “The Sugar Valley Fire Company really appreciates your donation,” he said.

SVRCS FBLA advisor Arleen Parker says she is proud of her students and those who support them in all of their efforts.

“Not only did these teens collect enough water to donate to the fire companies, our chapter raised $456 through a school walk-a-thon for Feeding Pennsylvania. Everyone really stepped up,” she said.

Senior, Blaine Walizer, chapter president, wanted to be sure to recognize his members as he gets ready to hand his office over to the next president.

“I’m very happy with what our FBLA has accomplished this year. We’re paving the way for bigger things in the future. A huge thank you to each and every person who supports us as well as the school itself,” he said.
