They may be rivals on the football field, but at the gate tonight students from Boyle County and Danville high schools will unite to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
"I think it shows that we can engage in friendly competition and still unite for more serious causes," said Cortney Miller, student council president at BCHS.
In the past, the two schools have competed to raise money for causes but decided to get together for the people on the Gulf Coast.
"It's seems inappropriate to compete to raise money for this cause," said Sam Pollom, student council president at DHS.
The two presidents expect collaboration from the council members, cheerleaders and other clubs at their schools. Students from both schools will get together at 12:30 p.m. today to organize their effort.
