Auction sends service message

Eagle patrons gathered in the new gym for the 25th annual auction, which generated just under $100,000, March 8. With nine tables, each offering over 20 items, the auction gave FC supporters the opportunity to bid as well as help the campus.

“There was a very nice variety of items for people to bid on,” Debbie Siebert, interim superintendent, said. “The items hit a wide range of interests.”

The auction gathers money for the school, funding anything from student events to construction on campus. Though this year’s auction gathered less than expected, coordinators of the event believe the night was a success.

“The actuality of the auction is, there was a wonderful spirit of joy throughout the whole night,” emcee George Freeman, junior high associate principal, said. “People seemed as though they were having a good time.”

While the 2008 auction revenue was slightly less than last year, the auction offered many new aspects for guests that entertained as well as inspired those in attendeance.

Sammy Linkowski (’16) did a highly successful Elvis Presley impersonation for 20 minutes that really rocked the house,” Freeman said. “It exceeded all of our expectation; it was one of the highlights of the auction.”

Besides Linkowski, an interactive magic show was also performed. Other students also helped out during the auction for more menial tasks, such as clean-up and coordination.

“It was actually pretty fun helping out at the auction,” Shelbi Ghosoph, ’10, said. “I walked around and was supposed to get people to get raffle tickets. I got five community service hours for it, too.”

Though Jon Endicott, associate principal and head of the student volunteers, was absent from the evening, Siebert noticed several commendable traits from the young volunteers.

“We had a tremendous amount of students to volunteer their time,” Siebert said. “We had students help with parking, traffic, ticket sales and clean-up. Their contribution really eased the workload.”

Through student volunteers, Siebert hopes to send a positive message to the community, desiring guests to appreciate the dedication of campus students.

“The willingness and attitude was awesome,” Siebert said. “This event went off without a hitch’; it was a well-orchestrated symphony. I just want the school to be more service-minded. We are here to serve.”
