Campbell's Market Donates to VCHS Recycling

 The Vinton County High School Recycling Program would like to thank Campbell's Market in McArthur for their recent donation. The recycling program was in need of new shopping carts to help in the collection of recycled cardboard, paper, plastic, and cans from the high school classrooms. The old carts were worn, loud in the hallways, and hard to use. Thanks to the generous donation of two new shopping carts, the program can begin the 2018 school year being more efficient. Pictured below are VCHS Principal, Josh Tripp, with Campbell's Market Manager, Gary Saunders, and VCHS Teacher and Recycling Coordinator, Chris Eldridge.Campbells Market donates to Recycling ProgramCampbells Market donates to Recycling Program
