VIDEO & PHOTOS: Mission teachers get pies in the face

Heritage Park students helped raise $1,000 for Cops For Cancer with pie in the face promotion

Students at Heritage Park Middle School gathered in the gym Friday afternoon for an entertaining spectacle.

As part of a fundraiser for Cops For Cancer, students were given the opportunity to shove a pie in the face of their teachers.

And the student who helped raise the most money, Flynn Marshall, got to do it to the principal and vice-principal.

“It was amazing it was so much fun. All my hard work was put to great use,” said Flynn after he finished carefully placing the pies in each face.

The students raised close to $1,000 – with Marshall raising just over $100 himself – for Cops For Cancer, more than doubling the goal of $400.

“We are very proud of the students. They showed a lot of initiative to come up with different ideas to come up with the money,” said vice-principal Mikel Brogan.

One of the original ideas was to have Brogan shave his head for donations.

“I settled for the pie in the face,” he said with a laugh.

Overall, the students, and the teachers, seemed to love the idea as a loud cheer rang out after each teacher was covered in whipped cream.

While the whole event was a group effort, Brogan gave special mention to the leadership students, led by teacher Erin Matheny, who “spearheaded” the fundraiser.
