West Salem High School senior raises money for area fire departments

WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) - A West Salem High School student is presenting a check to area fire departments as well as two local Lions clubs.

In Late September, West Salem High School senior Nick Miller, with the help of the Barre Co-ed Lions Club and the St. Joseph Ridge Lions Club, raised over $15,000 during the first Fore Alarm Scramble in memory of David "Gator" McClintock, a West Salem fire fighter who died in March.

On Sunday, Miller presented two checks worth $6,000 each to the Shelby and West Salem fire departments.

Miller says raising money in McClintock's honor was personal.

"Nine years ago, we had a house fire and Gator was one of the firefighters that was there at the house and I just felt like it would be important to give back to them after all they did for me and my family," Miller said.

The rest of the $15,000 will be given to area Lions clubs.
