Group shot of the STAR Council at the American Red Cross breakfastRoanoke City Public Schools has identified 441 homeless students so far this school year, that's down 91 students from this time last year.  The decrease is largely because of the efforts of the STAR Council.  STAR stands for Students Take Action in Roanoke.  It is a group of Patrick Henry and William Fleming High School students.  The council's mission is to help our homeless students.  To date, the STAR Council has raised close to $18,000.

The STAR Council received the American Red Cross Education Hero Award.  Patrick Henry's Reese Betton and William Fleming's Mark Randolph represented the council at a breakfast at the Hotel Roanoke.  To watch the WSLS-TV story, click here
