A group of Taylor County High School (TCHS) students and teachers presented a $836.50 check to United Way, the proceeds of a variety of fund-raising activities held at the school.
To raise the money, student council members and National Honor Society (NHS) members sold donation tickets for daily drawings. Participating teachers were also given donation collections for their classrooms. The winning teachers, Christine Bennett and Nick Ward, received a pie in the face during a special assembly. Since the school reached its fund-raising goal, Principal Audie Ash also kissed a pig during the same assembly.
