Greeley-Evans School District 6 pulls in nearly $100,000 in donations for meal debt

A Greeley-Evans School District 6 campaign to wipe out meal debt has received nearly $100,000 in donations, thanks to a Denver television news program airing a feature on the Food4Success effort.

Since 9News reporter Kyle Clark featured the District 6 debt Sept. 9 in a weekly segment called “Word of Thanks” on his show “Next with Kyle Clark,” the district has received $97,880 in donations as of Thursday morning to help cover the $147,819 debt and allow the district to avoid taking funds from other programs.

“We are thrilled,” said Julie Hill, executive director of The Success Foundation, a 10-year-old non-profit organization independent from District 6 overseeing the long-running Food4Success campaign. “We can’t express it enough. It was well beyond our expectations.”

Clark tweeted Wednesday afternoon that the total of $96,000 marks the largest fundraising week for a Word of Thanks feature.

Morgan Stanley Bets on These 3 Stocks; Sees Over 40% Upside

Did the stock market’s epic rally just need a little breather? The last few weeks have seen stocks experience their first meaningful correction since the bull market kicked off in March. Now, the question swirling around the Street is, will the rally pick back up again, or is more downside on the way?According to Morgan Stanley’s chief U.S. equity strategist Mike Wilson, uncertainty regarding the presidential election and stalemate on the next stimulus package could lead to declines in September and October. “On the correction, there’s still downside as markets digest the risk of congressional gridlock on the next fiscal deal. While we think something will ultimately get done, it will likely take another few weeks to get it over the goal line,” he noted.However, Wilson argues the recent volatility in no way signals the end of the

Student debt exploded because of taxpayer-backed college loans

Before COVID-19, before nationwide protests, and before rioting shook our streets, one of the biggest issues during the Democratic presidential primary debates was that of the absurdly high cost of college and associated student debt.

It’s a legitimate issue. College is exceedingly expensive. But the Democratic candidates never got into why college costs have been skyrocketing faster than even health care or what to do about the underlying problem. Instead, they offered government bailouts in the form of debt forgiveness and socialism is the form free college for everyone. These “solutions” would actually make the problem immensely, unsustainably worse.

For instance, Democrat standard-bearer Joe Biden wants to expand federal income-based college debt forgiveness and create a free public college program for families making less than $125,000.

But higher education was never to be intended as an entitlement. The underlying problem that the Democrat candidates did
