Gary Galland (letter, May 24), I think you should take a moment to look around at other students from Big Sky and Sentinel, and what they are doing in this community. You have only focused on basically one thing, cleaning Splash Montana. Just because Big Sky and Sentinel don't make the front page of the newspaper does not mean they aren't active in Missoula.

For every year that I have attended Big Sky, which is four years, our Key Club has put on the biggest fundraising dance among the high schools. It is called Snowball and has raised over a thousand dollars every year for various charities.

That's awesome that Hellgate cleaned Splash; good for them! Just to let you in on a bit of information, Big Sky does not only care about sports. We have an outstanding Key Club, drama department, independent research class (APS), and speech and debate team. You have no right to say that Big Sky and Sentinel don't do anything for this community.

So again, good job for Hellgate, but bashing more than 2,000 students the way you did isn't respectful and you should look around before criticizing other students in this community. Thank you for your time and I hope you will rethink what you have said and be more observant.
