Education: Knollwood honor roll

A.L. Brown High School has won the second annual aluminum cans collection competition, sponsored by the Kannapolis Environmental Stewardship Commission.
The contest is held between A.L. Brown and Northwest Cabarrus High School and is held in observance of Earth Day.
A.L. Brown collected 402 pounds of cans, equaling $120.60. Northwest collected 107 pounds, equaling $32.10. All of the money has been donated to the Firefighters’ Burned Children Fund.
“This was a fantastic way to foster the act of ‘thinking green’ among our community’s youth while supporting a very worthwhile cause at the same time,” said city of Kannapolis Community Outreach Coordinator Renee Goodnight. “We hope to collect even more cans next year and continue to grow this contest.”
Kannapolis Fire Department retrieved the wagons filled with the collected cans and measured the official weights.
