VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A local high school DECA project reaches international lines.
Organizers are calling Saturday's Forgiveness Walk at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College a success.
We told you about the project, which is led by two Terre Haute South students, several weeks ago.
Proceeds from the walk will go toward a scholarship from the CANDLES Museum. The scholarship is given to one student and will send them on a trip to visit Auschwitz alongside Holocaust survivor Eva Kor.
"I was the first recipient of this award in 2016," said Kate Grabowski, project coordinator, "and so this project is a way for me to pay it forward so another student in high school can go with Eva next summer."
For its first year, Grabowski says the Forgiveness Walk saw more than 150 people.
She's hopeful to continue it with more attendance next year.
