Help sought for LCHS Project Graduation

Posted on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 11:17 am

Project GraduationPlans are in the works for Lincoln County High School’s 17th annual Project Graduation, an all-night party for the graduating class, on Friday, May 17.

Totally funded by the community – businesses, churches, civic groups and parents – this year’s fundraising campaign is falling, and consequently, the school is reaching out for monetary donations as well as donations of items that could be used as door prizes.

“We have a prize walk similar to a cake walk, and as of right now, we are way short on items for this game,” said Jan Posey, a member of LCHS’s staff. “This is one of the favorite aspects of Project Graduation for the students.”

Chaperones are also being sought to assist throughout the night, Mrs. Posey said. The event gets underway at 12 midnight and continues until 6 a.m., and volunteers are being asked to work at least two-hour shifts.

Anyone wanting to donate items or work as a chaperone can call the school at (931) 433-6505 and talk to Patty Plunkett, Jacob Sorrells or Mrs. Posey. For items that are donated, they can be dropped off at the school’s front office or school staff will be glad to pick up items.
