Seckman High School Raises $14,000 for St. Baldrick's Foundation
Students and staff at Seckman High School held a fundraising assembly Friday, March 14th in conjunction with St. Baldrick's Foundation, an organization that funds childhood cancer research.
Over 40 students and staff members participated in fundraising efforts for St. Baldrick's foundation, raising more than $14,000 during a month-long fundraising campaign that was organized by Parker Krueger, a junior at Seckman High School. Since the participants met their goal, over 40 Seckman students and staff members, including principal Don Grimshaw, Spanish teacher Sarah Torrini, event organizer Parker Krueger, and assistant superintendent Andy Arbeitman, shaved their heads in front of the entire school and community. Seckman Spanish teacher Sarah Torrini said that she didn't have to think twice about shaving her head. "Participating was the right thing to do," Torrini said.
