Bump! Set! Spike! And rest! At least that’s what guests may see when the staff at Randolph Eastern School Corporation takes to the floor on Wednesday, November 6 to help raise money for the Randolph Eastern Classroom Teachers Association (RECTA) annual senior scholarship. This annual event helps to supply funds for the $2000 scholarship the association gives to a graduating senior going into the field of education and has been welcomed with open arms and hearty laughs.
The games start Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the UCJSHS gymnasium. Admission is only $2.00 per person, which is money well spent for a great cause and a great time! Concessions will also be available for purchase for a minimal amount with all money going into the scholarship account. The teachers and staff have added a raffle this year- all paying guests will automatically be included in the drawing, no extra purchase necessary!
Ashley Gard, the event coordinator, says, “This event is near and dear to our hearts because it helps one of our own enter into a profession that truly changes lives. We’d love to fill the gym with guests- we’re hoping for a great turnout!”
There are four teams set to compete on Wednesday. Team Black includes- Jennifer Vincent, Cobie Wells, Brad Hoggatt, Justin Daniels, Philip Brewer, and Senior team member Britney Kniesley. Team Gray is made up of Natalie Morgan, Andy Stover, Kevin Lawrence, Tonya Harshman, Ashley Gard, and Holly Morris. Making up Team Red are Aaron Black, Tony Evans, Ashton Noggle, John Zakelj, Valerie Overleese, and Senior team member Alex Bragg. Finally, Team Blue consists of Nancy Whitted, Kayla Noggle, Mike Thompson, Kyle Whitesel, Brittani Webb, and Senior team member Sydney Ralston.
The weather is set to be a bit off-putting by Wednesday, but your presence is encouraged at this event. Grab your umbrella and put on your raincoat, make your way to UCJSHS and show your support for a fantastic event headed up by a group of fantastic people!
