Congratulations to the United Way Student Leaders , who held their 4th Annual Run for Shelter 5k, an event that raises funds for the two local homeless shelters in Johnson County. They raised over $500 in cash and donations for the two shelters. There were around 25 runners. The Cosmetology and Massage departments donated amazing prizes for the runners, and the student leaders obtained donations from over 30 local businesses in the community for prizes as well. They worked really hard and had a great, cold, and wet Saturday morning.
