Jackson Hole High School’s robotics team will hold a clothing drive to benefit the Wind River Indian Reservation.

Donations of clean clothing, in plastic bags, for children ages 6 to 12 can be dropped off at the High School front office by June 3.

Despite canceled competitions, virtual events and other COVID-19-related challenges, students in the robotics/science program had a good season.

Highlights for the FIRST Robotics Challenge, for example, included Stella Vickland-Davis being named the Dean’s List Award Finalist, and the JH RoboBroncs being selected as one of the Chairman’s Award winners for the region.

Vickland-Davis and the team will compete virtually at the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Championships this summer, a press release said.

“This year presented a variety of challenges, but our team had many successes and learned a lot,” coach Gary Duquette said in the release. “The work they invested this year will benefit the team going forward.”

Questions about the clothing drive may be emailed to Duquette at gduquette@tcsd.org.

Jennifer Dorsey is chief copy editor and Business section coordinator. She worked in Washington, D.C., and Chicago before moving to the Tetons.
