Keagan Payne is a grade 10 student at Dalhousie Regional High School who has been busy this past month. Throughout the school year Keagan has been working on functional programming and building his culinary skills. Keagan enjoys helping people and sharing his creations, so the team thought this would be the perfect way for him to put his skills to work and help the community at the same time. For the last three weeks he has been making and selling pizzas. All money raised was donated to the Restigouche SPCA. The shelter staff were so pleased with his support.
