Teams of detectives (4 – 6 people) roam (run?) the halls of Gervais High School collecting evidence and interrogating “persons of interest” in order to squeeze confessions out of our suspects.

Debbie Warren When she’s not busy being a single mom, working two jobs, or going to school to become a teacher, Debbie somehow finds time to be the best neighbor around town. “She is a very hard working, dedicated single mom who always has a smile on her face and is willing to help when and where ever needed.” -Anonymous “She goes out of her way to take the time for people. She cuts my grass without being asked. She keeps an eye on me and offers to give me breaks from the kids. Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough.” -Anonymous If you want to recognize someone who goes out of their way to do nice things for other people, contact to submit your story to the newsletter.
