School is not conducting fund-raiser

Sunday, September 28, 2003

SIKESTON -- Despite recent door-to-door solicitations, Sikeston Public Schools alternative school, New Horizons High School, is not conducting a fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

"We are not requesting donations of any kind on behalf of New Horizons," Principal Lynn Crader noted Friday. "Apparently some people are soliciting area residents and claiming the school is part of a fundraiser for St. Jude's, but we are not."

Crader said the Sikeston Department of Public Safety has received multiple phone calls about the instances. Anyone who receives these solicitations should contact the Sikeston DPS immediately at 471-6200.
