The second annual H.O.P.E. Day (Helping Other People Everywhere) was held on May 13, 2011, at Stockdale High School.

This year’s event benefited Bryce Tomerlin, the 1-year-old son of Nathan and Jennifer Tomerlin, who was born with cystic fibrosis. The high school students held competition day in the morning where “Minute to Win It” games and water games were performed.

The “No-Name Team” of Jeff Kissee, John Dugi, Clint Ploch, Dillon Carpenter, and Jesus Zamora was the first-place team. Following close behind were the reigning champs from last year, “The Wolf Pack,” consisting of Colton West, Trevor S. Baumann, Patrick Washburn, Kelson Alderman, Dusty Mosier, Hunter Pierdolla, Caleb Sanchez, and Cody Hastings.

When the competition day was over, the students moved outside where a carnival was set up and the elementary and junior high students were allowed to come and play the games, enjoy the clown, and eat snow cones.

In all, they raised $3,291.04 to help the Tomerlin family with medical expenses.

The following businesses/individuals donated money so this event could be possible: Janicek Insurance Agency, Jimmy and Carol Chandler, A&C Oil Co., Blue Bonnet Club, All Dolled Up, Caraway Ford, Dr. Currier, Petal Patch, Trent Rowell, Attorney at Law, Akin Gauging Service, Commerce Bank, Sylvia’s Mexican Restaurant, Kim Kinnison, Johnie and Kay Deagen, Banks and Charlin Akin, David and Gina Deason, Valerie Marrou, Mike and Sandy Lynn, and Amy Thiede.

Without the support of these businesses and individuals, this day would not be possible.

A presentation ceremony was held May 17 in the high school auditorium, where the check was presented to the Tomerlin family. The event was a huge success and the students look forward to next year!
