Harrison Students Present $10K Check to Fowler Family

Harrison High School students recently presented a $10,000 check to Kendall Fowler and his family, the result of months of student-led fundraising efforts to offset medical expenses.

 

Students began accepting donations shortly after Fowler, a 2018 Harrison High School graduate, was injured later that year. The school's chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America placed plastic jugs in the lunchroom, while other students saught donations from local businesses. As word of the fundraising efforts began to spread through other Harrison schools and the community, donations continued to pour in. Students traveled to the Boone County Regional Airport to present Fowler with the six-figure sum on September 27.
