SVHS Juniors present check to 2 district employees
Smithson Valley High School juniors Katie Funk, Jennifer Moreno and Amy Lefever made a surprise visit to Spring Branch Middle School with a very large check recently.
The girls, in Cricket Ingraham's PALS class, raised $2,242 for two district employees, SBMS coach Molly Lightsey and SVHS band director Jeff Lightsey, whose infant son Clark was born Nov. 9 with a diseased colon.
Funk told Ingraham she wanted to do something to help with medical bills related to Clark’s required surgeries.
“I love coach and the schools,"
Funk said, in a district press release.
"I wanted to help them somehow because I knew the medical bills were high.”
The girls raised the First $1,000 with a basketball shoot-a-thon for 75 students and adults. The remaining money was donated by local businesses.
Molly was overwhelmed by the student’s gesture.
“Thank you, thank you to everyone,” she said, through tears. “This will definitely help. Our insurance doesn’t cover the cost of all of the supplies we have to buy for Clark.”
