Kylie’s Voice: Basketball for Backpacks

By Kylie Bick for The Aha! Connection

Basketball for Backpacks at Dunwoody High School was a success! Many students came out last Friday night to support their teachers and help contribute to raising money. The $1,400 raised went towards backpacks and school supplies for children in DeKalb. Some of the schools that are being donated to are Hightower and Kingsley Elementary. What made this basketball game interesting was that the teams consisted of some of Dunwoody’s most loved teachers and staff! The Blue Team came out on top with 45 points, but the Orange Team showed great hustle until the very end with 32 points. A big shout-out goes to our Dunwoody High School Principal, Ms. Cole, for keeping score, the Chick-fil-A Leaders and the DECA students for making this night impactful and fun.
