Maryville Intermediate students enjoy stylish ride

The 12 students from Maryville Intermediate School walked out of their classrooms and into a Hummer Limo recently as the students enjoyed their prize as the winners of the school’s fundraiser.

Their destination? A free lunch at Aubrey’s in Maryville with anything on the menu available to the students and their chaperones.

The students at MIS raised $21,000 in four days during their Eagle X-Games fundraiser. The top fundraisers got the free lunch and limo ride, courtesy of Aubrey’s, Blount Today and L’Espace Motorcoach. Before the limo ride, the entire student body celebrated the success of the fundraiser with a special program. Guests for the special event were the “Mandangos,” a “singing” group that entertained the students before they went back to class. The Mandangos received rave reviews from the student population.

Winning teams were the River Otters and the Sharks. Those two teams got a “Day in the Park” and pizza lunch for their efforts in raising funds.

The money raised during the Eagle X-Games will be used for projects and equipment for the school, as designated by the PTC. Promethean boards are at the top of the list for the school, as well as other technology purchases and projects.

Chairs of the Eagle X-Games were Fran Leonard and Sandy Abel. A host of volunteers participated in the Games. Principal Jan Click said she was very happy with the X-Games and the results, especially in this time of financial hardship for many parents.
