In the wake of the devastation following the recent hurricanes staff and students at Ludlow High School organized a fundraiser to assist the victims.  Lisa Nemeth, LHS Principal, explained that a raffle was held at the recent open house, athletic games and during student lunches to raise money for the National Educator's Association Disaster Relief Fund.

The TriM Society, National Honor Society, Leading Lions and the Interact Club  worked collaboratively to organize the fundraiser.  Tickets sold for a price of 1 for $1.oo or 6 for $5.00.

“The fundraiser included two raffles prizes,” shared Nemeth. “The first prize was a free parking spot in the front row of the main parking lot to the lucky winner- for a full year. If a student won this prize but did not yet have their license, the spot will be held until they have a car. The 2nd prize was four VIP athletic passes - which is free passes to all athletic events, all year, along with eight free passes to basketball hall of fame, four LHS t-shirts and two pairs of LHS socks.”

The raffle drawing was held on September 19th. The winners were LHS parents Carla Lussier and Dori Dagenais who quickly transferred their prizes to their LHS students- Matt Lussier and Justin Dagenais. Matt decided on accepting the the athletic passes, so Justin, a sophomore accepted the front row parking spot, which he has put on hold for him until he has his driver’s license.  

Nemeth was proud to report that a total of $1,041 was raised, and will be donated to the National Educator's Association Disaster Relief Fund. “Many schools were damaged in the hurricanes and teachers and students need our help rebuilding,” shared Nemeth.  “Anyone who would like, can make a donation directly to their website- nea.org/hurricanerelief.”
