CHRISTMAS IS ON – A Lake Superior State University sports and events marketing class presents an oversized check for $2,607 to the staff of Chippewa County's Department of Human Services. The proceeds are from a golf scramble students organized in October as a class project to benefit the Cares for Kids Fund. The DHS-administered program provides clothing, diapers, and sports equipment to families in need, as well as other support programs the DHS sponsors such as Shop with a Hero, Mystic Lake Summer Camp, and Project Backpack. Left to right are DHS Director for Chippewa County Christopher Stabile; DHS staffers Ian Juntunen, Kirsten Calery-Corbiere, Erica Stempky (holding check), Lauri Brown (in front of screen) Jennifer Sheppard (red stripes), Justin Jarvi (against screen), LSSU student Jordan Johnston (in middle with glasses, dark pullover), DHS staffer Elizabeth Copeland; and LSSU student organizers Christopher Person (against screen, clapping), Leslie Hovie (behind check), Travis Hill, Ian Bowyer, Ken Harrington (holding check), Ellis Van Hoesen, and Dominic Franca.
