HPS Goes Way Out West
Hennessey Public Schools held a fundraiser last Fri., Apr. 5, at the school cafeteria and in the parking lot between the school and the auditorium.
HPS treated guests to a western themed evening with chili and cornbread, games, face painting and a pie auction. Among the festivities were a ring toss, darts and a cake walk. Attendees also tried their throwing arm at a dunk tank, where they had a chance to dunk various volunteers, including Superintendent Dr. Mike Woods.
HPS School Counselor for pre-K through eighth grade, Stacy Cline, spoke to The Hennessey Clipper about the event, crediting The Community Action Team (CAT), two different Mothers’ Clubs, the Masonic Lodge, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and the Fire Department for the event’s success.
“We wanted to make a community service project for the school,” Cline said. “It’s really a community effort…This is what Hennessey’s known for, taking care of our own. [I’m] so thankful to our community that shows up every time we do one of these things to support the people in our community. It’s truly a community effort. It’s not just one person, but the Community Action Team, we call it CAT, is the one that just kinda helps bring everybody together and just wraps around everybody to see that it happens in the end.”
