On Thursday, November 2nd the Senior High Student Council, under the direction of Ms. Karen Ehrlich, held its annual volleyball tournament to support Building for Our Bravest, an organization that builds smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans who have returned home from war.

More than one hundred twenty students on twenty teams participated in the double elimination tournament. The event began with a motivational speech by Mr. Andrew McClure, a representative from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers foundation who explained the organizations' purpose and thanked the students for their participation and fundraising efforts.

The competition began with a faculty exhibition of more than 12 teachers who battled on center court. The students then competed in the junior high and senior high divisions until the winners were crowned. All students received a t-shirt for their participation.

It was a wonderful afternoon filled with school spirit and patriotism. Most importantly, more than $1180.00 was raised to help support our veterans.
