Buckingham students help Bolivians and Guatemalans

Spanish students at Buckingham County High School recently collected enough money to purchase a llama for an underprivileged family in Bolivia through the charitable organization Heifer International. The llama will provide wool to make clothing, carpets, blankets and rope, which the family can sell. This year, the students also purchased bees for a family of coffee farmers in Guatemala. Not only will the family make more money by selling the honey, but the bees will help to pollinate their coffee trees, which will yield more coffee. Pictured are, from left, front, students Overton Temple, Alexis Johnson, DeJanic Langhorne, Kirsten Woodson, back, John Crews, Trey Williams and Joshua Meek. We commend these students for, not only setting a good example for their peers, but for lending an assisting hand across the world. Send ‘Way to Go’ photos to waytogo@farmvilleherald.com.
