H.O.P.E. Day at Stockdale High School was held on May 24. The day began with minute-to-win-it games in the high school gym where 24 teams competed for the coveted title of H.O.P.E. Day champions.

The team In-Justice consisting of Taylor Deason, Mikey Opela, Clayton Lynn, Carey Murphy, Jordan Scheel, Miguel Marquez, LaShay Castro, Dusty Mosier, Robert Bischak, and Jordan Jackson were the leaders from the beginning and ended strong with a “survivor-type” final challenge. They were required to walk the plank, search for gold coins in a pool of shredded paper, sweep cannon balls (balloons) into a square and pop them, and return with puzzle pieces. The final challenge was to put the puzzle together. It was a close race but they were victorious over the team Mexican Menu.

The afternoon was filled with carnival games where students from the elementary, junior high, and high school campuses enjoyed a local DJ, snow cones, cotton candy, face painting, hair painting, and other various games. The high school students assisted in running all the games and booths and also directed the elementary students as they traveled around the gym.

The entire day was dedicated to Rickey Neill, a former educator with the Stockdale Independent School District who is battling pancreatic cancer. The proceeds of $4,366.77 were split between the Thrive Well Center and hospital bills.

This event would not have been possible without the donations from the following businesses and individuals: All Tucked Inn, All Dolled UP, Commerce Bank Texas, Classic Hair Designs, ICP, A&C Oil Co., Geofill, Jimmy Chandler, Stockdale 4-H, Caraway Ford, Sylvia’s Mexican Restaurant, Crystal Ice on the Run, Trent Rowell, Molly and T.C. Rowell, Robert and Marjorie Georg, Lowes Super S, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Martinez, Kathy Mairiano, and of course all of the Stockdale High School staff and students.
