Students pie Hough faculty for a cause
by Staff Writer
CORNELIUS – As a reward for helping Hough High School junior Ryan Sarll raise more than $500 to help Third World children receive cleft lip and palate surgeries, students got to watch as chemistry teacher Kenneth Carter and Dean of Students Sean Redfern received pies to the face.
Ryan convinced eight teachers to step up and put themselves in the running to take a pie to the face by a student who donated the most money to his fundraiser. Throughout the week of April 30, students chose the faculty members they wanted to get hit with a pie by placing their donations in jars labeled with each participant’s name. The contest ended in a tie between Redfern and Carter. All proceeds were donated to Smile Train, an organization that provides cleft lip and palate surgeries to children in at least 80 counties.
