Local Motorcyclists Donate

MOTORCYCLISTS DONATE TO SWE -- Last Week, Whitko Alumni Dan Cochran and Scott Rupert along with their local motorcycle enthusists group, stopped by and presented SWE's Principal Bryan Emmert with 21 backpacks they had collected for students in need.

The backpacks were well received and the message, according to Cochran, was simple, "You always have a friend in a biker. So, I mean, if you're ever in trouble or you need anything, and you see one, feel free to come up and ask for help."

The idea to donate the backpacks started a few years ago, and has since become a tradition for the group. Thanks to their assistance, the they're helping families reduce their back-to-school costs, one backpack at a time.
