Homeless Vigil

The Fayetteville High School Student Council will hold its annual Homeless Vigil on Nov. 29 in front of the high school, Davis Trice, a senior and president of the student council, told the Fayetteville School Board on Thursday. Student council members sleep in cardboard boxes on the school lawn to raise awareness and money for the district’s homeless students. Marian Riner, homeless liaison for the district, told board members the number of homeless students in the district has risen 89 percent in the last six years, from 160 students in 2006 to 302 students last year. This year, she is already working with more than 160 students and their families.

That is great news. Electronic books should appeal more to the kids today since that's how they live their lives. I am certainly far removed from being a kid, but I do find I use my reader a lot more than I pick up a book.
