On a Wing (Bowl) and a Prayer

Students who helped "wing" money to St. Jude's Hospital included, from left, Sydney Swartz, Sage Reinhart, Jalissa Corum, Megan O'Donnell, and Madison Camacho.

Blogger's Note: Only in Pottstown can an event championing the eating of chicken wings mean an improvement in children's health!

St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital was the beneficiary of funds raised by Pottstown High School student events recently.

Student Government representatives presented a check for $396 they raised to representatives of St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.

David Todd’s business class organized of a student version of the “Wing Bowl” in order to raise the money.

Students were responsible for organizing, advertising, and management of the wing bowl event which also doubled as a student pep rally.

Todd said, “our students gained valuable, real life business experience by organizing the event and seeking business advertisers and sponsors. However, the greater learning lesson for them was the value of helping those in need."

Teaming up with Mr. Todd’s business class were the students of the high school Student Government organization sponsored by Mark Agnew.

Members of Student Government also organized a spirit week door decorating event.

Sage Reinhart, one of the members of Student Government, expressed the feelings of many students noting, “it feels great to be able to help St. Jude’s Hospital that does so much for kids that really need help. The wing bowl was a blast and the door decorating event created a great deal of enthusiasm and spirit in our schools.”
