Four students from San Manuel High School attended the Pinal County Town Hall event held at Harrah’s Ak Chin Casino Resort on Oct. 16 and 17. This was the 26th Annual Town Hall with this year’s theme being “Step Up, Involve, Connect: Uniting Communities Through Volunteerism.” Each year students from Pinal County schools play an important part in the event. This year the keynote speaker was Judge William O’Neil. Bob Shogren who used to work in the Mammoth-San Manuel School District and now is the Director of the Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism also spoke and moderated a panel discussion.

The four seniors from San Manuel were Brittany Allison, Alvaro Alvarez, Analisa Robles, and Richard Romo. Besides the speakers, panel discussions and banquet, on Thursday the students participated in a volunteer event by cleaning up Vekol Wash near the Town of Maricopa. Britanny Allison also won an essay contest which gave her a $1,000 scholarship. The four students said that the event was awesome.
