HMS raises funds for Jimmie Hale

Published 4:09 pm Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Members of the HMS Student Council will present their first donation of the year to The Jimmie Hale Mission to buy 50 Thanksgiving meals.

A representative of The Jimmie Hale Mission will present a certificate and accept the students’ donation on Nov. 20. The funds were raised during the “Kiss a Pig” event held during “Panther Pride Week” from Oct. 5–9.

Students placed money in a bag for the teacher of their choice. The top three teachers had to kiss “Lilly,” a 180-pound pot belly pig, during a pep rally held on Oct. 12. The winners were: Kim Romano, Malerie Huguley and Coach Robert George. Student Council members will be also able to support other charities with the funds raised.
