CONGRATULATIONS to the Whittier "Relay for Life" Team who raised $2,300 and counting for The American Cancer Society by participating in a walk-a-thon at Northern Essex Community College's Haverhill campus on June 9th and 10th. This is the fifth year Whittier has joined the walk. Thirteen students and eight teachers participated and received pledges from family, friends and an ongoing fundraiser at Whittier.
English Teacher Teri Bragg and Physical Education Teacher Roxanne Grover organized the Wildcat Team. Joining them were students: Ekaterina Acevedo, Bryanna Alicea, Jassidel Baez, Estafania Cruz Aviles, Arianna DeRosa, Tiara Dube, Alycia Delgado, Lauren Fitzgerald, Mia Greco, Brianna McCarthy, Desiree Michaud, Cayleice Trongeau and Nicholas Wood.
Also participating were Culinary Arts Teacher and Interact Club Advisor Sue Josephs, English Teachers Lynn Messman and Elaine Bucher, Office Technology Teacher Ellen Petroccia, Cosmetology Teacher Suzanne Tozlowski, Assistant Principal Andy Pigeon, Coordinator of Curriculum and Professional Development Kelly Fay and Coordinator of Data and Assessment Katrina Jensen. Ms. Tozlowski set up a display of her department's Wig Bank, a program at the Whittier Cosmetology Salon that donates, fits and styles wig for people with cancer.
There is still time to donate to the Whittier Tech Team at: http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=80844
Also, money raised from a raffle of two Adirondack chairs built and donated by Carpentry students will go to the event. Winners will be pulled on Friday, June 16th at 11 a.m. at Whittier.
Students and teachers from Culinary, Cosmetology, Marketing and our Transportation Office donated a Whittier Tech Gift Basket for a raffle at the walk.
