Sussex Tech Ducks Unlimited raises $14,800

GEORGETOWN — Sussex Technical High School’s student chapter of Ducks Unlimited recently raised $14,874 for wildlife conservation efforts through its annual fundraising dinner in January. The money was recently presented to Ducks Unlimited regional director Taylor Deemer.
