Pennies With A Purpose: Lincoln & Willard students’ Penny Drives help United Way of Trumbull County – one cent at a time!

Two Warren City Schools students – Lincoln 4th-grader Cohen Herchler and Willard 2nd-grader Jacklyn Burdick – were invited as special guests to represent their schools at the United Way of Trumbull County’s Annual Meeting & Awards Luncheon on Thursday, May 26, 2022.

The United Way of Trumbull County presented its 2021 Give Award to the students on behalf of Warren City Schools “for their Outstanding Student Campaign.”

Cohen and Jacklyn were each accompanied by their school principals, Joshua Guthrie, principal/campus leader at Lincoln PK-8, and Carly Polder, principal/campus leader at Willard PK-8.

Guthrie said he invited Cohen to attend the event with him because Cohen led the 4th grade to victory by helping and encouraging his classmates to collect the most pennies in the school.

Polder chose Jacklyn not only for her penny-collecting efforts, but because she brightens her PK-2 pod every day by making the morning announcements – adding a joke or two to help her classmates start the day with a smile or a chuckle.
