Harlem Superstars help Shipbuilders
Jobs for Maine’s Graduates and National Honor Society students at Morse High School in Bath hosted the Harlem Superstars for a fundraising game on March 17. Both organizations promote student philanthropy and have separately completed hundreds of hours of community service and donated hundreds of dollars to nonprofit organizations. Working together was a first for these two organizations. The students met weekly in committees to plan everything from concessions to selecting the RSU #1 Dream Team to face the Superstars. From the game and raffle, the groups will be able to fund multiple $225 scholarships for drivers’ education and make a sizable donation to the Bath Mobile Food Truck. The scholarships and donation will be awarded by the JMG and NHS students on May 21, during the JMG closing ceremony.
