Story and photo by Clarke Davis

When Jefferson County North senior Marah Koons needed a senior project, she selected the Jefferson County Humane Society as the organization she most wanted to help.

Humane Society

Humane Society board member Keith Haynie and an adoptive friend accept a donation from Marah Koons, a JCN senior, who dedicated a dance recital to benefit the animal shelter.

Marah had been a member of a dance troupe since she was 4 years old, so she turned to her fellow dancers to put together a recital for a fundraiser.

She’s a competitive dancer with the Entertainment Dance Co., so along with EDC dancers she invited the Encore Dance Center at Meriden and the her high school dance team and cheerleaders to join in a public recital.

They threw in a holiday theme, served up some refreshments, and asked for donations.

The recital resulted in collecting $261 for the animal shelter along with donated supplies.

Marah is the daughter of John and Deborah Koons, Nortonville. She plans on attending Kansas State University after graduation and will major in communcation sciences and disorders.

And, she added, her minor will be in dance.
