Student Council hosts parking spot raffle

Parking has been a hot topic at Manhattan High for years. Students are faced with the challenge of finding a parking spot in the morning, often settling to park outside of school lots. However, Student Council is giving one student the opportunity to to stand aside and watch the madness unfold as they pull into the best parking spot the school has to offer. 

The parking spot, located in the front loop of the school, will be awarded by StuCo through a raffle, which will serve as their semester fundraising project. Students will be able to enter the drawing buy purchasing a raffle ticket for one dollar, starting in December. 

“StuCo has to do two fundraisers a year and it’s a part of our constitution,” senior and student body president Hannah Higgins said. “We were thinking about what we could do that would be something that StuCo can do every year and Will Bannister came up with the idea to raffle off a parking spot.”

The winner of the raffle will be announced at the Manhattan v. Junction City basketball game and keep the spot for the rest of the semester.
