My Students

We are in the third year of reviving the wrestling program at Garinger High School which was defunct from 2014-2016. We want to encourage school spirit and school pride by offering our students uniforms that put them on an equal playing field with any other team. These boys are always on time, and very appreciative of any help and support they receive from staff and community. Last year one of our players qualified for the state tournament.

My wrestling team is a group of guys who work hard and love to wrestle, and they would go through a brick wall for me.

Their academics are strong, and these young men have participated in community service by doing campus clean-up and reading to elementary school kids. They are a special group of teenagers at a school where there are frequent discipline problems. They stay above the fray, and show school spirit that is unusual in this environment.

My Project

The boys on the wrestling team at our school come from low-income families that cannot afford to buy their students warm-up suits and wrestling gear. Our school does not have athletic booster support like many other schools. Our team usually just warms up in their own shorts and shirts.

Having these hoodies would improve the current wrestling team’s spirit and pride.

When we attend games, we are the only team in the district that doesn't have warm-ups. Proper wrestling attire would encourage more students to participate in wrestling and would mean a lot to the boys currently on the team. It will help them feel equal to the other schools, and give them a sense of pride in what they do.
