Mornings can be tough for anyone waking before the sun. Some days your routine may be rushed, causing you to skip steps such as eating the most important meal of the day, breakfast. Riverton High’s Counseling Center is here to help.
In 2014, Riverton chose their Silver Rush charity of Healing Hearts. After a very emotional and heartwarming opening ceremony, the Silver Rush season began. Teachers and students came together once again to form ideas on way to help. Tina Skolmoski and Stephanie Galley in the Counseling Center wanted to get involved.
“After we had seen the Silver Rush opening, we knew we had to help,” Galley told me. The idea of selling muffins to students and teachers spread quick. Although sells started late in the Silver Rush season, business was good. That year, muffins sold for a dollar a piece. As a total in 2014, their muffins contributed $800 to Silver Rush. The next year, they doubled their profit contributing $1,600. This year, although prices of the muffins have been raised to $2 for 1 or $3 for 2, students still come rushing in for their morning muffin favorites, such as poppyseed and chocolate.
“Before School is crazy,” Galley said. “We have a huge line. I like the (new prices) so friends can buy them for friends. Some days we sell out completely.”
This year, they are in high hopes of doubling profits once again, but also hope to help make a difference; not only for Silver Rush but in the students lives as well. “It’s my favorite time of the year,” Galley adds. “I really really like being involved.”
