May 12, 2017
The class of 2018’s fundraiser brought in big bucks for the class of 2018 this past Friday, May 5.
Teachers and dancers from the Arthur Murray Dance Studio partnered together to compete in the charity dance held in the auditorium.
“I think that learning to dance and doing it for a good cause is really a great experience,” History teacher Mr. Palen said.
Dancing With the South Stars (DWTSS) was brought back from the most recent contest in 2014, and raised $3000 this year.
“We were so determined to make sure it was a success because we knew it would be something teachers and students alike would enjoy and love,” student and MC Ellie Connors ‘18 said.
Audience members attending the event gathered in Clemenson Hall during intermission to vote on the winning contestants.
“My family and I voted for Mr. Kim, but I had a feeling Mrs. McCulloch was going to win,” Ally Bearman ‘20 said.
Chemistry teacher Lauren McCulloch took home the first place prize Friday night.
“Mrs. McCulloch’s dance was great. So was the rest of the fundraiser, it was a great time and great thing for South to come together,” Audrey Aldrich ‘20 said.
