Whitehouse Junior High students broke records last night with the number of coats collected in the recent Coats for Kids campaign and earned their 13th consecutive contest win.

WJH Student Council has been collecting coats over the last month to help keep the kids of Smith County warm this winter. The coat drive brought in a record-breaking number of 815 coats.

WJH Student Council sponsors Annie Baker and Melissa Woodfin organized the campaign and helped motivate students to collect as many coats as possible. The students also received help and support collecting donations from Whitehouse High School students.

“The students of WHS came through and helped their younger siblings accomplish this monumental amount of donated coats,” said WJH Principal, Josh Garred. “I was amazed by the support that poured in from the high school and the community in order to keep the trophy at the only home it has ever known.  All of Whitehouse has come together to take care of kids all over Smith County, and that is what we are all about here in Whitehouse ISD.”
