Andraya Givargis, a sixth-grader at W.T. Clarke Middle School accepted the title of school principal on April 21 as part of the school’s “Principal for a Day” fundraiser.

Organized by the school’s Change 4 Change club, sixth- through eighth-grade students entered the contest for the chance to serve as school principal by purchasing $1 raffle tickets. The Principal for a Day program raised more than $200.  

With Principal Stacy Breslin at her side, Andraya spent the day on Friday conducting the morning announcements, attending meetings with faculty, visiting classrooms to observe student learning and promoting educational excellence throughout the building.

Change 4 Change is a student-driven service club in which members develop creative fundraising projects and competitions throughout the year. During a culminating assembly at the end of May, the members distribute funds raised from the year to causes of their choosing. So far this year, the club has raised more than $4,000 through various drives and fundraisers.
