Each year we eagerly anticipate our partnership with RHS and RHHS for the I-30 Classic hometown rivalry game.

Announcing the winner at the game adds excitement to the event, and we’re proud to support the winning Student Councils with grants for their outstanding efforts. The collected food benefits the Helping Hands Assistance & Referral Food Pantry, a cause close to our hearts. Year after year, the results speak volumes about the generosity of our community, with the 2023 drive producing a staggering 50,483 lbs of food!
In addition to our food drive this year we also collaborated with RISD’s Dr. Gene Burton College & Career Academy (GBCCA) graphic design students, we recently held a t-shirt design contest, and we were thrilled to crown Yasmin Hylla, a talented student from RHHS Class of ’24, as the winner.
