In memory of Calista Isbell, the Isbell family and friends decided to help collect pairs of shoes to donate to Nashville-based Soles4Souls, by setting up boxes around town, including two at the high school.

Sophomore Alexis White said that they plan to have the boxes out for a full calendar year, leaving them until next November.

Isbell’s family and members of Calista’s Crew met with Principal Straub in late October to ask him if they could set the boxes up at school and he approved it. There are two boxes in the hallways, one by the main office and another in the gym commons area.

The students involved check the boxes regularly for any donations, and then they have to inspect the shoes. The shoes are supposed to be gently used or new, none with holes in them.

“We plan to put posters up around the school,” White said. “We also plan to make an announcement in the near future, like how StuCo has been doing the Dodge for a Cause.”
