Dodgeball success leads to future fundraisers
In December, advanced architecture teacher and sponsor of Generation Green, Derrick Crowder and his students hosted a dodgeball tournament in the gyms as a fundraiser for Generation Green.
At the game, issues arose with cheating or filling in the tournament brackets incorrectly, but thanks to Crowder and his volunteer staff, towards the end, these problems eventually resolved.
“That was our fault, we should have actually had more people attend to that,” Crowder said.
According to Crowder ticket sales and team entrance costs raised a couple thousand dollars.
“[The dodgeball tournament was] highly successful, I mean as far as what I’ve been hearing, everybody had fun,” Crowder said. “We had a lot of parents, staff and people from the district come to watch.”
The tournament’s success motivated Crowder to plan another dodgeball tournament in the future.
“We are already in talks of the next time we’re going to do another game,” Crowder said. “The students that competed wanted us to do it next semester. We actually had a mud run planned for the [spring] semester, but we may reconsider.”
If another game does not occur in the spring semester, Crowder confirmed a tournament for the following year.
