Coat Drive For Children In Need

Coat Drive For Children In Need

Clovis Police Corporal Dustin Dodd, joined by Officer Scott Borsch, is renewing his winter coat drive for children in the City of Clovis this holiday season.

Last year, the public and members of the police department donated a total of 475 new or gently used coats and jackets for those in need.

Donors are encouraged to drop off new or gently used coats to any of the following partner locations: Caltrans, which provided the drop off bins at area stores and churches; Target Corporation; Walmart Supercenter on Herndon Avenue; Kohl's at Sierra Vista Mall and all Clovis CVS stores.

Several area churches are accepting donations as well.

The goal is to provide a coat for every child in need in the Clovis Unified School District this winter season.

The coat drive runs through December 15th.

Please note, there are drop-off bins located in several Fresno stores as well.

Congrats To This Clovis North Student!

Congrats To This Clovis North Student!

Spencer Howells, a senior at Clovis North High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on his ACT college admission and placement exam. Nationally, on average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earns the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2014, only 1,407 of nearly 1.85 million students earned a composite score of 36.

 

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores.

 

ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. four-year colleges and universities. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
