Grant Sawyer Middle School Students Raise Funds For Red Rock Canyon

Grant Sawyer Middle School Students Raise Funds For Red Rock Canyon

The students at Grant Sawyer Middle School are quite an extraordinary bunch. When they heard about the graffiti that was painted over ancient Native American Art at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, they didn't just get upset- they decided to do something about it. The students, with faculty advisor Lynn Zepeda, organized a fundraiser to help with the cost of removing the graffiti. This Friday, the students will be presenting the money raised to the Friends of Red Rock Canyon.

“We are very appreciative and proud of the efforts of the Grant Sawyer students.” said Mark Beauchamp, president of Friends of Red Rock Canyon. “Their hard work and commitment to value and preserve our past will certainly help us in our work to protect Red Rock Canyon for future generations to enjoy.”
