With Valentine’s Day long gone, Flushing High School offered a fundraiser that supported DECA, while also encouraging students to send something sweet to their valentine. Whether it was a friend or future significant other, this program was sure to spark interest. I spoke with Mr. Sirle about projected rose sales. His rough estimate was about 380 roses.
According to last year’s numbers, this was 25-30% higher.
Additionally, 68 Crushes were sold, which was a little less than last year, and 64 bears (combos included), were sent off to giddy teenagers, which was slightly more than last year. Here’s a pie chart to keep those numbers straight:
On Wednesday, February 6 senior Keinyi Dixson made a huge decision. In Flushing High School’s library at 3:15, Dixon signed a letter of intent to play football for the University of Findlay. Among the spectators watching the signing were Dixon’s parents, pastor, and the majority of his teammates from football and basketball. Paul Brieger, Flushing’s athletic director said, “Choosing where to go after high school is a huge choice and I believe Keinyi made the right choice.” Flushing is very proud of Dixon’s achievements.
