The Central Digest has received increasing support over the years from Central alumni and many others. Despite this, the state does not designate funding for us in the school’s budget. This results in The Digest having to raise money on our own. We organize various methods of fundraisers for ourselves, but for the time being, we are primarily focusing on collecting Coke caps. Each Coke cap has a unique code printed on the inside of it, making it valued at five cents. Even though it doesn’t seem like a lot, the money adds up pretty quickly and hopefully, with the help of more people, the journalism department will be able to steadily raise funds.

“The Central Digest is not funded by anyone, so we need everyone to donate in order to continue to be the voice of the school,” explained Gregory Cantrell, the adviser of the Digest.

The Central Digest is an independent school organization that relies on advertisements and the Coke fundraiser for money. We are the voice of Central High School and want to keep it that way.

“We hope to buy new computers, but right now we need to pay for the website upkeep that cost $700 each year,” divulged Preston Fore, the editor-in-chief.

Although new computers would be a dream for the Digest, our top priority is to pay the fee charged by SNO (School Newspaper Online), our website provider.

“We hope to put boxes around the school and raise awareness on social media,” added Fore.

The journalism staff has made donation boxes to put in each pod of the school, in hopes of spreading the word school-wide. The bottles are to be recycled after their use, further benefiting the environment. Small changes can make a big difference and completely change the outlook of something.
