  • GHS students want your sweaters. Grandview High School junior Gloria Guizar has helped organize a challenge that pits Grandview against all of the rival school in its athletic league. The challenge is to collect as many sweaters and sweatshirts as possible to help those in need. Guizar and other leadership students are working together to collect new and gently used sweaters that will be donated to the local Salvation Army. "I wanted to start a tradition of helping people," Guizar said. At the high school students are asked to bring their sweater donations to their homeroom classrooms. But the competition doesn't end at the high school, students throughout the district and their families are asked to bring sweaters into their schools to help the Grandview Greyhounds win the 2014 Sweater Challenge. All sweaters have to be in by Wednesday, Oct. 22.
