A local school that has made news for its efforts to help low-income students has received a boost from a popular talk show host.  Whitney Elementary principal Sherrie Gahn was a special guest on yesterday’s season premiere of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”  Not only did her students appear on camera, but DeGeneres presented Gahn with a 100-thousand-dollar check to help provide services for the kids and their families.  Target also donated over 600 red backpacks with school supplies, blankets and snacks.  Whitney has one of the highest homeless student populations in the Vegas Valley.
