Cascade High food drive shows they have hearts of servants

What a thrill to read the article about Cascade High School students food drive! (“Almost every student chips in to make this fundraiser work,” The Herald, Dec. 14)

I was taken back to my years at Cascade in the late ’60s in Jim Langus’ English class. We were a proud class to claim top honors for donations under his energetic and loving guidance. The importance of teamwork, encouraging servant hearts, sacrifice and giving to those in need has affected and enriched my life to this day.

To every person involved, well done, and may this Christmas season fill your lives with new wonder!
