The student council of McKinney North High School will host 2010 CNN World Hero Magnus MacFarlin-Burrow on Monday, April 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the McKinney Performing Arts Center.
It’s part of the STUCO’s effort to raise money to build a school kitchen in Malawi. They’ve already raised $7,000 and this event will provide an opportunity to increase that amount. They hope that a school kitchen will offer an educational opportunity to kids who spend most of their days searching for food.
This is a remarkable STUCO group. Recently, they were selected by the Texas Association of Student Councils to be honored for their project “A Simple Solution,” and they just returned from the State Convention where they received a Top Ten Project award among student councils across the state.
They are one of only 12 STUCO groups in Texas to receive the National Association of Student Councils’ Gold Council of Excellence Award this year.
