continued “I consider Harvard Model United Nations as my sport so thank you Riley Ford for your continued support of the club that makes me who I am,” added student and Model UN member Nathan Swan.
Superintendent John Fairchild also commended those who made the donation possible.
“The Chazy community demonstrated its support for our school by showing up to test drive Ford vehicles all day long,” said Fairchild, adding an additional nearly $1,000 was raised by donations to a student run car wash, bake sale and other activities during the day.
“On top of raising funds the students, staff and community were brought closer together by participating in a shared activity,” he added.
