A new vending machine greeted students in the dining room on Thursday, Feb. 27. The machine is part of a new corporate sponsorship agreement between the Red Lion Area School District and Contintental Vending, according to district Marketing and Communications Mgr. Don Dimoff.
Snacks in the machine serve students involved in school activities and organizations. The machine is only accessible before 7:40 a.m. and after 2:40 p.m. to meet state law.
Some of the snacks included in the machine are Martin’s Potato Chips, Combos pretzels, and Pop-Tarts.

Mouth watering aromas could be smelt along the A100s to the C100s. This was because the Marketing Fair -- held at business teacher Mrs. Krouse’s room -- had all the best foods anyone could find on January 13.
The students taking Marketing class have been non-stop preparing. They were designing their displays, packaging, and pitches to bring customers in to try their delicious food.
The marketers were dressed to impress, to serve, and were prepared to catch the eye of the consumer. Students used bedazzling techniques to decorate. Senior Tori Sprenkle used lights on her display, while senior Shae Owens and others glittered their displays.
But the most important part was the food. The consumers were predisposed to what they wanted. Some went straight to the desserts as if they had a sixth sense while others went to spicy food. There was also appetizers and main dishes. The crowd seemed to have a hard time finding a favorite between these, and most went back for seconds.
“It was hard at first putting everything together, but then it got easier from there.” said senior marketer Melissa Clark.
The principal and vice principals came in as a pack ready to devour, pleased as they went around sampling.
“It’s definitely unique. I like seeing the hard work of the students.” said principal Mr. Shue.
The visitors voted, and seniors Tori Sprenkle (Best Display), Sierra Stambaugh (Best Verbal Presentation), and Nate Vangorder (Best Food) were the best of the show. Despite the final outcome, everyone did a great job!
