Two iSchool High sophomores, 15-year-old Courtney Brumley and 16-year-old Avery Palacios, are competing in a Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) competition later in January. The pair wanted to do something benefitting women, so they directed their focus toward domestic violence and decided to launch a donation drive for the Montgomery County Women's Center. The center provides a 24-hour hotline, safe shelter, crisis intervention, counseling, advocacy and legal services to survivors of family violence, sexual assault and stalking.
