This year was the 5th annual Spring Sanity Dodgeball Tournament which was held on May 12, 2017. This year the National Honor Society decided to donate their proceeds to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The week leading up to “Spring Sanity” there were several smaller events held to bring in the most money possible. Students participated in Stop The Bob, Teacher Dunk Tank, and the first annual Swim Sanity.

The new addition of Swim Sanity was an idea brought up by a student, Bailey Bonnett who is a competitive swimmer and will be attending the University of Kentucky in the fall. I got a chance to talk to Bailey about the contest, “Mrs Black had the initial idea.  I just added to it and the class worked together to organize the most efficient way to run it.”  They were able to have a great event.   “Each team had four members and only one members could be from the swim team. The only rule for like the actual swimming was that you had to wait till your teammate touched the wall to go. They would go through a bracket and the winner of the bracket won a prize. It made approximately $300.  We gave $200 to Make-A-Wish and used the other $100 toward repairs to the swimming pool.”

Both swim sanity and spring sanity are great ways to bring the whole student body together as one in a fun and productive way.
