Recently, students and their sponsors raised over $2,100 for Roland Bailey and his family. As most of you know, Roland had to undergo surgery on his back that required his father Mark to be off work for an extended amount of time. As usual, the students and staff at EHS wanted to do what they could in order to help friends in need.
The Spanish Club under the sponsorship of teachers Ruth Adame and Lisa Bynum presented Roland with a check for $1,400 after offering a movie and snacks to the student body for a nominal fee. Girls athletics and their coaches sponsored a bake sale at the high school taking donations for homemade goods. They raised a total of $716 for the cause. I for one appreciate and am proud of our students and staff for stepping up whenever there is a need in our community. Plans are already being made for the upcoming MDA fundraiser that we do on behalf of Roland.
I wish everyone a wonderful holiday and a Merry Christmas.
