Krista Kirst, New Underwood School Student Council Advisor, says, “We are hosting Tiger Pride Day and it’s a really great way for our kids to give back to the community that gives so much to us throughout the school year we help clean the school, clean the town. Gets kids engaged, gets them outside and you own fulfilling some civic duties that are really important and integral to student council as well.”

Todd Quigley, New Underwood Middle and High School Principal, says, “When you’re in a small community, the school is most often the center of the community and the focus of the community as well and our community does so much for us as far as fundraising, supporting our athletics and fine arts programs – it’s our way to give back to those people that help us out everyday. “
