GALENA, Kan. – An elementary student from Galena raises money and donates it to her school district.

Emma Jarvis donated more than $1,000 to pay off her classmate’s overdue lunch debt. She used the money she won from the Junior Miss Galena Pageant and a GoFundMe account to pay the school. Jarvis was concerned about students not being able to pay for the lunch they ate during the school year.

“Very unique for a young person to be looking around and noticing the circumstances of those around them”

Trey Moeller, Superintendent

Emma also donated money to the Galena City Pool.
