Quapaw Students Set Off on Senior Trip after Originally Donating Funds

Posted: Updated:

The Quapaw High School seniors are leaving for their senior trip to Dallas early this morning.

They originally donated their funds to relief efforts after the devastating EF-2 tornado struck the Quapaw community on April 27. But the town joined together to help them out, and help make the trip possible.

Residents in the town joined together to begin the rebuilding process just as soon as the threat cleared. Among those were the Quapaw High School senior class that made the decision to donate $2,000 dollars for their trip to Dallas to the cleanup efforts.

QHS Principal Terry Tyree told KTUL that students wanted to give the money to Quapaw because it was the community that helped them raise the funds.

Tyree said that when news of their donation broke several organizations reached out to help the students go on their trip. Walmart, Coca-Cola and several local tribes were able to collect more than $3,000 for the students.
