From CHS Student Government, cosponsors Cara Soukup and Peg Krambeck Eblen, and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and advisor Shannon Smith


Creston High School Student Government and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) would like to thank everyone who supported the “Battling for Babies” fundraiser on Tuesday, Jan. 21, at the Creston Orient-Macksburg wrestling meet.

Our student leaders invested time and energy into planning and conducting this event because many of them feel passionately about the work done by March of Dimes.  However, the event would not have been successful without the involvement of many people and organizations.

Congratulations to Coach Frain, his coaching staff, and the C/O-M wrestlers for their victories over Red Oak and Shenandoah. Thank you for hosting our event.

Thank you, First National Bank and Ferrara, for purchasing sponsorships. We are also grateful for the donations from Tyler Insurance and Great Western Bank.

We appreciated the individual wrestling fans who agreed to make pledges per pin; your pledge made each match a little more exciting and contributed to our overall fundraising efforts. Thanks.

We are grateful to the CHS Peppers and art students who gave of their time to paint faces and fingernails. Your presence helped create a fun atmosphere at our event.

Finally, we want to acknowledge the help of Mr. Messerole, Mr. Bevins, CHS custodians, and Claudia Peppers. Thank you to all teachers and school employees in Creston and at O-M who assisted in the distribution and collection of T-shirt orders.  

At this time, we believe the Purple Out event on Tuesday raised approximately $1,600.  Thank you so much for your generous support to benefit March of Dimes.
