SGHS held a fundraiser for freshman student, Michael Turner. Michael is going to begin dialysis and needs a Kidney Transplant.
He suffers from Alport Syndrome and the money raised will help cover some of the medical and transportation expenses. The fundraiser began when a few of Michael’s friends expressed interest in doing a fundraiser for Michael. The students collaborated and invited a few other students to help raise money. A goal was set for the Freshmen Class to raise $500.00 in advisory in three days. If they were successful, Mr. Hoehne, SGHS Principal, agreed to take a pie in the face from Michael during advisory. The freshmen raised 606.00 in those three days. The upperclassman where then challenged to meet this amount in their advisory. Upperclassmen were able to attend the freshmen assembly if they donated at least a dollar to this cause. Mr. Mercer, SGHS assistant Principal, also took a pie on the face from Jacob Hercher. Jacob donated 110.00 dollars of his own money to support Michael. The freshmen came together as a class for a classmate and exceeded expectation. The boys that coordinated the fundraiser were from different circles within the freshmen class and each had their own unique contributions. It was a moving experience to see the school come together for Michael. Students were encouraged at the assembly by Freshmen Class President Joe Allen to continue to support students in their class during their time of need. A total $801.55 was raised in this fundraiser.
