BHS wins McCreery concert
American Idol winner Scotty McCreery will perform a concert at Burlington High School to reward students there for collecting the most toys in a concert sponsored by Milwaukee radio station FM 106.
BHS was one of five high schools chosen to compete in the contest — the others were Greendale, Kewaskum, South Milwaukee and Waukesha West. The schools combined to collect 9,724 toys for the annual Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign.
Burlington students, staff and community members donated more than 2,100 toys to the effort, according to teacher Matt Behringer, who assisted with the drive.
For a full story on BHS’s effort, including a photo of the collected toys, see the Nov. 10 print edition of the Burlington Standard Press.
