WWVA Puts Mission In Action with Food Drive

Walla Walla Valley Academy (WWVA) freshmen Brittany Englehart and Sonja Rootvik sit in the Bible classroom at Walla Walla Valley Academy with 6,000 pounds of food collected by students for the holiday season at the Blue Mountain Action Council Food Distribution Center in Walla Walla. The food drive was sponsored by Mission in Action (MIA) an outreach group headed by WWVA senior, Karen Villanueva. “Each class was challenged to bring in as many pounds of food as possible,” she said. The sophomores claimed first place with a stunning 3,000 pounds, followed by the juniors, freshmen, and seniors.
