Middle school's antics aimed at raising dollars

Crook County Middle School launched effort to raise money for children's hospital - the first push came from within the school, and the second push will be out in the community with a variety of activities including a golf tournament
In what appears to be a wild pre-spring break assembly, students at Crook County Middle School had their fondest dream come true when principal Rocky Miner was duct taped to the wall. Actually, it was a well coordinated in-house fundraising event geared to benefit Doernbecher Children's Hospital. Each student bought a strip of tape and attached it to Miner and the wall until the deed was done. Students also made donations to determine which male teachers would take place in a leg shaving contest (left). These events are leading up to an April push for funds in the community. See side bar for details.
