    COLORADO SPRINGS — Camille Morales said that she couldn’t have said it any better, but it’s seemingly true when it comes to Evergreen High School cross country. It’s not about the individuals as much as it’s about the program itself.

  • King-Murphy kids help the hungry

    The lesson for King-Murphy Elementary’s sixth-graders was simple: It’s important to help others in the community.

    The students learned that lesson through a school-wide food drive. The school donated 750 items to Evergreen Christian Outreach for families in need.

    Last Tuesday, the students loaded boxes of canned goods, juices, boxed macaroni and cheese, detergent and other items into a vehicle sent to the school by EChO.
