Project Graduation relies on community’s support
Parents organizing Woodford County High School’s Project Graduation 2017 are asking the community for its support with monetary donations and gifts-in-kind, which are tax deductible. Project Graduation provides a safe, alcohol- and drug-free environment where WCHS graduating seniors can celebrate with their classmates. Students win a variety of prizes while playing games during their all-night celebration at Falling Springs Arts and Recreation Center, where they also have access to an indoor swimming pool and other facilities. “It’s just a great time for them all to be together,” said Debbie Parrett, co-chair of Project Graduation. She said organizers asked graduating seniors what games they would like to play at this year’s Project Graduation. “So we feel like everything we’ve got put in place this year is what they want,” she said. In addition to free food and refreshments, every graduating WCHS senior who comes to Project Graduation will receive a free t-shirt, goody bag and $50, Parrett said “Everything … is donated – through businesses or parents,” said Parrott. “We’re trying to get every senior there,” she added. “We’ve got 266 seniors this year,” and well over half of them have signed up. Donations should be sent to WCHS Project Graduation, c/o Debbie Parrett, 180 Frankfort Street, Versailles, KY 40383. In a letter to potential sponsors, organizers stated, “Through your generosity, we can assure a memorable event for our students. We ask that you or your business make a monetary contribution or donation of a prize, gift certificate, or service to WCHS Project Graduation 2017.” Other parents serving on the Project Graduation committee are Christy Collins, Tyra Evans, Rhonda Barrier, Debbie Spears, Stephanie Mobley, Cordie Adams, Tami Craig, Kimberly Hudson and Mel Bradshaw.
