The Enterprise State Community College Circle K club held a “Pie a Teacher” fundraiser on Jan. 29 in the Student Center.
Students could buy tickets for $2 a piece for a chance to pie their choice of ESCC Student Services Specialist Jennifer Olsen, ESCC President Matt Rodgers, ESCC Biology Instructor Ashley Snellgrove, ESCC Chair of the Fine Arts Division Ken Thomas or Dean of Instruction Danny Long.
The goal for the fundraiser was $100, which the group exceeded by raising $230.
Just under half the funds came from Thomas who donated $50 to avoid getting pied, but ESCC student Quest Hatchett counter donated $50 for the exclusive right to pie Thomas.
“I don’t think it could have gone any better,” ESCC Circle K Club sponsor Snellgrove said. “It was just the most fun event, and I think everyone had a really great time.”
All of the money that was raised will go to the Circle K International Alabama District’s Reading is Fundamental campaign.
Reading is Fundamental is a group that promotes child literacy by donating books to at-risk children, according to the KCI Alabama District website. Reading is Fundamental has donated to over 25,000 children a year with about 2,000 of those children being local to Alabama.
