Students in two very different classes at Marshalltown High School came together for a project that not only helped them learn, but also will help their fellow classmates.

Students in the fashion design and merchandising class taught by Jaime Anderson and the construction tech class taught by Larry Kadner joined together to build MHS Bobcats bags (cornhole) games.

The construction students built the wooden boxes with the Bobcat logo on them while the fashion design class made the blue and red bean bags used in the game.

They will sell the games with the proceeds going to purchase personal hygiene products and other items such as winter gloves and hats for their fellow MHS classmates in need.

“The girls in my class were really excited that the money we make will be able to help their fellow classmates,” Anderson said.

A total of 25 game sets have been made and are for sale for $50 each.

“It showed a lot of teamwork between our classes,” said MHS senior Moira McCarville, who is in the fashion design class.
