Community gathers to show support for Preston High students injured in crash

VALLEY POINT — Monday night Preston County 4-H’ers invited the community to join them in supporting members of their 4-H family who are hurting.
People gathered at the Mount Moriah Church to show support for four Preston High students who were injured in an auto accident coming home from school Feb. 6, and the boys’ families.
While the rain poured outside, about 100 people gathered in a circle inside the church. Four-H uses circles in many ways, Preston County 4-H Agent David Hartley said.
“At 4-H camp, we do a circle every night,” he noted. “We go to council circle and sing songs and we have cheers that we do, and we cheer for one another.”
