For years, Michelle Morgan has been heading up the craft show that raises money for Project Graduation even though she didn’t have a senior student going on the trip. This year her son, Ryan, is in the class of 2018 and will benefit from a destination unknown to graduates until they board the buses in the high school parking lot on June 3, right after the ceremonies.
Morgan is super-organized, said Marian Steffen, who headed up the trip for the class of 2017. “It’s the most successful fundraiser of the many the parents and students put on to help pay for the trip. The event rewards the students for the years of effort culminating in graduation,” Steffen said.
Saturday, November 18, marks the 24th Annual Vicksburg Project Graduation Craft Show at Sunset Lake Elementary school. Included are over 75 craft vendors, a raffle, bake sale and face painting. Customers can browse the booths for Christmas decorations as well as gift ideas from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It features local crafters and even attracts many from out-of-town because of the vendors that Morgan recruits each year.
