A Tracy High School senior raised $950 this fall to buy supplies for local elementary schools as part of her senior project in the Agricultural Scientific Academy.

Kylie Taylor has been studying poverty in America for the project for about three years.

To raise the money, Taylor gathered items from family and friends that she sold in a garage sale in October. She researched the socioeconomic makeup of schools in Tracy, and after narrowing the list to five elementary schools, she interviewed each principal to see what he or she would do for the school with a bit of extra money.

On the basis of those interviews, Taylor gave $200 to McKinley Elementary School to buy new books for the school library and $750 to North School during an assembly Tuesday, Nov. 12.

North School Principal Fredrick Medina said the money would pay for bilingual books and supplies for workshops in the school’s Parent Education Program.

Leftover toys, clothes and housewares from Taylor’s garage sale were donated to McHenry House Tracy Family Shelter.
