Interact Club students honored

Mayor George J. Kondik, on Monday, presented Mayor’s Awards to Madonna and Weir High Interact Club students who participated in the Soup, Socks and Smiles program in the fall. Weirton was chosen as one of four cities out of 150,000 to win a “Make A Difference Day Award,” and the Interact groups won $10,000 for their food drive efforts. They donated the money to the Salvation Army and Community Bread Basket. Maj. Sue Dewan of the Salvation Army was on hand to thank the students. “It means so much to people living in poverty here in our community. Thank you,” she said. — Shae Dalrymple
