As a result of their extraordinary fundraising efforts during the annual “Battle of the Classes, Battling for a Cause” event that raised $20,000 for Smile Train and Hagedorn Cleft Palate Craniofacial Center, students from the high school’s Key Club and Student Organization visited the Smile Train Headquarters in New York City.

The trip, attended by the school’s top fundraisers, provided students with the opportunity to learn about different job opportunities available in a nonprofit organization and how Smile Train carries out its mission. Students took part in a virtual reality tour of an underdeveloped nation and observed how patients receive care during cleft or palate reconstructive surgery.

“Battle of the Classes, Battling for a Cause” has been recognized as the top service-learning fundraiser in the state by the New York State Key Club.
