Farragut 6 Shares can drive a huge success


Farragut High School students were victorious on the football field Friday, Sept. 10 defeating Bearden High School by a score of 14-0. FHS also defeated Bearden in the Second Harvest food drive bringing in a record 69,213 pounds of non-perishable food. FHS has an enrollment of 2,300 students, which makes the total 30.1 pounds per student.

Bearden High School donated 42,801 pounds of food. BHS has an enrollment of 2,017 students, which makes the total 21.2 pounds per student.(see BHS picture, page 35 in this weeks paper).


Jerry Luneke, events coordinator for Second Harvest, said he was very pleased with the amount of food donated by both schools. “This was a tremendous food drive and we are very grateful to both schools,” he said.

The combined total of the two schools was 112,014 pounds. Luneke said the Second Harvest tractor trailer had to make several trips to both schools because of the amount of food.

The Second Harvest food drive is sponsored by WATE-TV 6, Kroger and Star 102.1. Laurie Tucker, WATE-TV news anchor and Elaine Machiela, executive director of Second Harvest, presented the awards to the two schools. Rich Bailey represented Star 102.1 and Brenda Young represented Kroger.

There is no food drive this weekend. It will resume on Friday, Sept. 24 pitting Karns against West and Clinton against Anderson County.
