AED-CPR Fundraiser Update

We are happy to announce that as of today we have raised over $13,000 and are in the process of providing the McLean County Pony Baseball an AED machine.

In addition, the Bates family recently participated in an AED/CPR training class along with others that was held at U-High and are now AED/CPR certified.

We would like to send a BIG THANK YOU to Thomas Metcalf School for raising over $4,000 for the fundraiser. Kai (a Metcalf Alum) and Mrs. Bates visited the school to thank them in person.

ACT-SO Gold Medal Winners

This past Saturday was the annual Bloomington-Normal Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) Competition. This event is the youth initiative of the NAACP.

Jordyn was selected as the Gold Medal Winner in the Music Instrumental-Classical and Oratory contest. Boston was the Gold Medal Winner in Entrepreneurship. Finally, Elijah was the Gold Medal Winner in Architecture. These three students are now eligible to attend the National NAACP ACT-SO Competition held in Baltimore this July.

Softball Outlasts Pontiac

The U-High softball team defeated Pontiac 1-0 on Wednesday in Corn Belt Conference play. The scoring run for the Pioneers came thanks to Makaylea Sepich’s walk off single in the bottom of the 14th inning. Congratulations ladies!
