My Students

Ours is a high-performing high school located on the coast in rural North Carolina. According to the state's ranking system, we have become quite an academic powerhouse, especially considering our size. Interestingly, we are also quite an athletic one; our students excel in the classroom and on the field. There is always room to grow!

Our students are more than willing to work hard, especially those that are playing team sports.

Our students recognize that hard work pays huge dividends. The baseball team is one that I coach and they are more than willing to "Hit it outta the park!"

My Project

Our baseball team was set to receive new uniforms this year. However, when COVID-19 canceled our sports seasons, our school was not able to bring in the necessary revenue to operate from ticket sales, concession stand sales, and sponsorships from local businesses.

Because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, our school is not able to afford to purchase the baseball team new uniforms this year.

With your help, our student-athletes can experience the excitement and pride of

wearing new uniforms and representing our school with style. As the saying goes: Look good, play good!
