Thursday was our annual All Captains Workshop.  Over 80 NHS Athletic Captains from Fall, Winter and Spring Seasons took part in the program, "The Leader in Me." Thanks to the NEF for the funding to bring in Ron Walker and Dr. Carroll Blake, two great speakers, who conducted an interesting and interactive workshop.

Congrats to the Girls Soccer Program who held their "Pink Night" on Tuesday to help raise money for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Campaign.  The Girls were recognized by State Rep Denise Garlick, as well as, the American Cancer Society for their fundraising efforts over the last 3 years.  Through sponsors and a great raffle, the girls raised over $6,000 on Pink Night Alone!
