Students at Rae C. Stedman Elementary School in Petersburg this week learned about the fruits of their fund raising effort that helped put up a new kindergarten building in Wondo Genet, Ethiopia. The student council in the K-5 school sought money from local businesses last year and the students also secured pledges for a reading fund raiser.
