Lugoff-Elgin High School’s Spanish club is helping to collect money for books for Colegio Isaac Jesus Batera, a school in Ecuador. This isn’t just any school, Colegio Isaac Jesus Batera is the school where Queen of Water subject María Virginia Farinango works as a guidance counselor. "The students who read Queen of Water feel a personal connection with Maria and her school," L-EHS Spanish I teacher Gaye Howard said.
