Stockdale High School hosted its 2012 H.O.P.E. Day on May 4, where this year’s day benefited the American Cancer Society in Judy Childress’s name.

Mrs. Childress was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and as an ex-student and educator at Stockdale High School, we saw it as fitting to honor her with this year’s cause. The event raised $4,434.11 and a check-presenting ceremony will be held on Wednesday, May 23, in the food court.

The morning competition began with “Minute to Win It”-type games in the gym, where each team competed for the almighty title of H.O.P.E. Day champs. The two top teams, “The Wolfpack” and “The Black Raptors,” competed in an “Amazing Race”-type scavenger hunt where the Raptors were the eventual winners. They received crowns and beads in honor of this title. This team consisted of Jordan Scheel, Clayton Lynn, Jordan Jackson, Taylor Deason, Miguel Marquez, Mikey Opela, Carey Murphy, Sierra Garza, LaShay Castro, and Robert Bischak.

The afternoon was filled with the elementary and junior high students partaking in a carnival where the high school students either worked booths or helped the elementary students play the games.

Stockdale High School would like to thank the following people and businesses for their sincere donations, because without these donors, this day would not be possible: Stevens Trucking, The Robert George Family, Paublina Marquez, Luke Childress, Mr. and Mrs. Lance Childress, Mr. and Mrs. David Hastings, Stockdale Oilfield Supply, A&C Oil Co., All Dolled Up/All Tucked In, Sylvia’s Mexican Restaurant, Jimmy Chandler, Caraway Ford, T.C. and Molly Rowell, Trent Rowell, Attorney, Janicek Insurance Agency, Dr. Currier, Commerce Bank, and the Stockdale Fire Department for filling up the dunking booth.

Carley Trout is a sophomore at Stockdale High School. The daughter of Jeffery and Rhonda Trout, she has a sister, Courtney. Carley is in the school’s gifted and talented program, plays tennis and golf, and is a member of the FCA. She plans to attend college after high school, but has not decided on a major field of study.
