Members of the Wellington Middle School Leadership Team along with their sponsors, Kristin White and Terri Driskell, went shopping Saturday morning to spend money earned for "2" Angel Tree Kids (an 11 yr old girl and a 12 yr old boy), for Christmas.
The students participating for the heartfelt shopping event were Aniston Zeka, Carley Hamilton, Jessie Calhoun, Eli DeJarnett, Jensen Lynnes, Gavin Witham and Derrick Lowe.
Monies for the event were raised at WMS with the assistance of the staff. Teachers are allowed to wear jeans only on Fridays. For the past few weeks, the Administration allowed the staff to wear jeans any day they wish as long as they would pay a dollar to the Leadership Team Angel Tree fund and that's what they did, to the tune of. $200 as a matter of fact!
The Leadership students and their sponsors took the booty to Wal*Mart and their efforts and the efforts of the staff at WMS will make at least "2" kids in Wellington happier on Christmas morning than they would have been otherwise.
Awesome job Knights!!
Merry Christmas to all and to all, A GOOD "KNIGHT"! (x 7)
