Wish Week numbers

Delta High School (DHS) held Wish Week March 22 - 26 and raised $5,216.79 with its various activities. These included Miracle Minute — where students donated money, pass the basketball — which made its way around the community, and lunch time happenings. Funds were raised for the Wish Foundation and Aiden Hutto, a Montrose High School student who was recently diagnosed with cancer. The foundation will receive 20% and Hutto will receive 80% of the monies raised.

Shawna Magtutu, DHS counselor and student council advisor, is pictured getting her head shaved by senior Fernando Santillan. Magtutu made a deal with student council that if it raised over $3,333.33, she would shave her head. This year was the highest amount raised for Wish Week. Other teachers and students also shaved their heads and dyed their hair to show their support.
