La Grande Middle School students are too young to have their driver's licenses. However, this did not prevent them from taking the wheel of a successful food drive this month.

The students collected 2,271 items in a drive that concluded Thursday. The items were given to Neighbor to Neighbor Ministries.

The drive was led by the 29 students in the school's leadership class, taught by Carter Wells.

The drive featured a competition between the LMS advisory or home room classes to see who could bring in the most food. The competitive element sparked a lot of interest among the students.

"Everybody was involved,'' Wells said. "The competition made it fun and exciting.''

Jerry Mayes' home-room class won with 547 food items. Mayes' class has won the LMS food drive competition at least three straight years.

"There is a lot of pride and tradition,'' Mayes said. "And a little classroom rivalry.''

Cydni Carter, a student in the leadership class agreed that the motivation to be number one was a great incentive. She also liked the opportunity to help others. "It was like giving a Christmas feast,'' the eighth-grader said.
