Several Interlochen students led a water drive for the residents of Flint, Mich.

The student group Pay It Forward, led by seniors Jamie O’Brien and Sydney Maeker and Hall Coordinator Kat Ray, collected bottled water from students, faculty and staff throughout the month of February. On March 11, the students travelled to the Cedar Street Shelter in Flint to donate the water they collected. Through the students’ efforts, two carloads of bottled water were collected and donated to the residents of Flint.
