EMHS Swine Week

February 19th, 2006

[Swine Week]

Edmond Memorial High School, EMHS, home of the Bulldogs, is one of the three High Schools in Edmond, OK. The other two are North, home of the Huskies, and Santa Fe, home of the Wolves; all three schools, according to Newsweek, rank among “The 1000 Best High Schools in America”, that is the top 4% of public high schools in the nation.

The EMHS Swine Week is the school charitable week, taking place this year in the week of February 19. The tradition began in 1986, when the student council decided to raise money for a classmate who was ill. To entice students to donate, the teachers agreed to kiss a pig, hence the name Swine Week.

This year recipient is the Hearts for Hearing Foundation, an Oklahoma based non-profit organization devoted to providing resources for deaf children. Last year the students exceeded their goal of $135,000 by raising a grand total of over $141,000, and this year they are striving to make even better. Go Bulldogs!

Update: EMHS students have raised this year more than $178,000. Congratulations!
