JanaLe Fox, from Thatcher, knows how to have fun and raise money for the school at the same time. During most years the Thatcher School had less than 100 students, yet she still motivated the students to collect box tops and raise money. Over the years through Box Tops for Education (BTFE) she has raised close to $6,000 for the rural school through the national program. She has been the self-appointed box top coordinator.

“The money over the years has been used to buy books for the library or P.E. equipment,” said the mother of six. She’s had children in the school for 22 consecutive years, although none have attended for the past two years. She continues to be involved as a substitute teacher and BTFE advocate.

One day she was throwing some garbage away and noticed a box top offer on a cereal box. She decided to find out more about it.

Fox found that each box top was worth 10 cents. (See the full story in The Preston Citizen.)
