The Star City High School Art Club recently sponsored a Pie in the Face for the Cure fundraiser to raise money for breast cancer.
During the fundraiser, Star City High School students voted on which teacher they would like to see hit in the face with a pie by placing money into that teacher’s jar.
The three teachers with the most money in their jars at the end of a week were each hit in the face with a pie at a recent pep assembly. For every dollar a student donated, that student received a chance to be one of the students who threw the pie.
The three teachers who earned the most money and received pies to the face at the Pink Out Pep Rally were band director John Wilkerson, biology teacher Jim Teague and biomedical science teacher Lindy Vagts.
“We would like to thank everyone that helped make this fundraiser a success,” said Art Club adviser Roger Darren High. “The Pie in the Face for the Cure event helped provide a very visual way for use to generate both funds and awareness for this cause.”
Other teachers and administrators participating in the event included head football coach Jett Furneaux, art teacher Roger Darren High, physical education teacher Scott Johnson, science teacher Jill Merritt, assistant principal Gina Richard, Principal Mike Walker and science teacher Jody Wright.
The fundraiser generated $300 dollars in donations. All proceeds collected will be donated by the Art Club to the Arkansas Chapter of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer foundation.
