East Ambassadors Lead RISE Fundraiser

Our East 5th Grade Ambassadors recently worked with their sponsors, Emily Burt and Kelsey Brown, to raise over $2,500 for the high school's recent RISE fundraiser, which supports the Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Program at the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center.

This fundraiser began as the brainchild of then-4th graders Wyatt Farrell and Carter Choat during the 2019-2020 school year, and after school was cancelled due to the pandemic, the boys were determined to carry on with a fundraiser this year.

T-shirts with the new school EAGLE logo were sold with profits going toward this worthy cause.

High school Rebel Pals were on hand with their sponsor, Kym Prewitt, to receive the donation.
