ECMS Student Council students worked hard at coordinating a school-wide canned goods drive during the weeks prior to Thanksgiving break. Students collected thousands of non-perishable food items benefiting the local organization, "Caring & Sharing".  The generosity of Stingray students and families were sure to bring happy smiles to families of Walton County.
