Student Council auctions members to community

By Marissa Wagley

After the boys successful game on February 11, Student Council stepped in to raise some money for future events.  With Randy Hockman as the auctioneer, volunteers from Student Council lined up to be auctioned off.

You might be asking yourself, what exactly does “auctioning a student off” mean? It gives students the opportunity to help people in the community, knowing they won’t receive any of the money the bidder has paid.  This money will go toward any events put on by Student Council including decorations, a D.J., and a photographer for Homecoming 2014. These students are volunteering their time for one Saturday to do odd jobs for the person who paid for them.  If a student chooses to buy another student not only are they supporting a good fundraiser, but they also get the satisfaction of watching their classmate do their chores!

This year there were eleven students who participated in this event.

Although three girls weren’t present due to a girls basketball game, there was no trouble in selling them as well.  The first girl sold was Bailey Pearce for $90. Rick Slaughter was the buyer, but he didn’t stop there, later on he bought another student, Macy Warren, for a whopping $130.

Two of our FHS cheerleaders, Sarah Conrad and Jerrica Leib, showed up to be auctioned off as soon as they finished cheering for the night. Sheriff Andy Meyers contributed to the bidding and bought Leib for $70 and Bryan Pride gave his support and paid $60 for Conrad.  

Bryan Pride also began bidding on his own son, Jordan Pride, and after a tough bidding war with even Albion people participating, Pride bought his son for a whopping $210.  This was by far the highest bid of the night.

The fun didn’t stop there though! Classmates and friends of the volunteers started bidding as well.  Bailey Martin successfully bought Crimson Jones for $50 and Isaiah Fatheree spent $60 on Dylan Woodrow.

The night continued to get more exciting as our own principal Mr. Gummert bought not one, but two students. He paid for both Blake McWilliams for $60 and Alan Stephenson for $50.

Our own Student Council sponsor, Mrs. Slover, chose to support the cause herself and purchased Al Stewart for $50.  Ending the night with the best purchase yet, Ryan and Angela Scott’s daughter, Mariah, used her own money to buy a day with Logan Dulaney, A.K.A Wolfie.  He said before the bidding that kids loved him and that proved to be right!

Overall, the Student Auction was a huge success! A big thanks to all who participated or supported this event! Student Council came out ahead and hopes to receive more funds with the upcoming Country Rhodes Fish Fry.
