Weekie Wachee High School Gets a Jump-Start on This Year's United Way Camapign
As the final bell rang in the halls of Weeki Wachee High School (WWHS) on Wednesday afternoon, teachers gathered in the media center for a brief pow-wow before their Open House that night. The group came together for an overview of what was in store for the eventful evening, an update on dress code policies, and of course... their Annual United Way Community Investment presentation!
Weekie Wachee High knows exactly where their dollars go when they choose to invest in United Way of Hernando County. As the forms were passed around the small tables, dedicated donors, along with new intrigued staff, pledged to LIVE UNITED through the Hernando County School Board Workplace Campaign.
With this past summer's 8th Annual Stuff the Bus being such a success for our community, United Way anticipated sharing the results of what was collected with the teachers that helped make it all possible. Twenty WWHS teachers volunteered their time advocating for local classrooms and the growing need of school supplies for their students. This accomplished team completed a little over 52 volunteer hours in one weekend! Due to their participation, United Way was more than honored to donate an additional 20 stuffed backpacks to WWHS students in need.
Between the energetic atmosphere, the spirit of giving, and the leadership qualities this school holds, 2014-2015 is guarenteed to be a successful year for this school!
- THANK YOU WEEKI WACHEE HIGH SCHOOL FOR BEING THE EPITOME OF WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE UNITED -
