FSMS students thanked for providing clean water
Posted: May 14, 2015

Editor's note: Sixth grade students at Franklin-Simpson Middle School held a talent show last year to raise money to purchase water filters for people in a village in Kotekan, Indonesia. The village was surrounded by water, but none of it was clean to drink. The students raised $950 from the talent show, which was enough to purchase new filters for half of the village of 200 homes for the next two years. Jack Wright, who led a mission team to Indonesia several months ago, recently sent an email to FSMS teacher Susie Lucas thanking the school for what it did for the people of Indonesia.
