Both Nathan Hale High School in West Allis and Whitnall Middle School in Greenfield have been named National Schools of Distinction by the Schools Fight Hunger program.
Fewer than 2,000 schools nationwide earned this honor in the 2010-2011 school year. It is awarded for enthusiasm, creativity or dedication in fighting hunger.
Hale was honored for Souper Bowl of Caring Drive that enabled the school to 101 pounds of food to help the hungry.
Whitnall was honored for donating 6,300 pounds of food the Hunger Task Force. The school held a weeklong food drive that was a competition among classes. The class with the most points per student at the end of the week received a pizza party.
The Schools Fight Hunger program is a two-year-old initiative focused on connecting schools nationwide with the hunger cause, helping those schools fight hunger most effectively and celebrating the good work of schools and students.
