GLEN ROSE — The Glen Rose High School Class of 2022 will have just less than $100,000 to use for Project Graduation after ceremonies on May 27.

The annual Spaghetti Supper and Auction, organized by The New Focus of Somervell County and the Class of 2022, raised just more than $96,000 that will fund the party that will allow graduating seniors to attend an all-night party free from drugs and alcohol.
