The Manchester Valley High School Advisory Council, made up of local businesses, students, and school staff, is excited to announce that it has raised enough money to begin the bidding process for an electronic sign to be installed in front of the school along MD Route 30.
Approximately half of the funds were raised through the Business-Community Expos over the last 4 years and individual community donations. The other half was a recent $25,000 donation from a local family, Martin KP Hill, Martin P. and Michelle Hill, and Jeff and Jennifer Bubczyk, with Hill Development Group LLC.
“This a true community effort. We feel blessed and are thankful for the awesome support,” said Fundraising Committee member Matt Colender. The thermometer will be taken down next week, but the community is encouraged to stay tuned for updates on the progress being made for the purchase and installation of the new electronic sign.
The Advisory Council’s Sign Fundraising Committee is made up of:
- Joe Guerra, Principal
- Todd Calhoun, Matthews Tire & Auto Service
- Matt Colender, Edward Jones Investments
- Guy Garey, Quality Film and Video
- Andrew Boone, Maryland Print House
- Connie Michael, MVHS Performing Arts Boosters
- Tom Rhoads, Parent
- Allison Rhoads, Student Representative and other students at various times.
