Highline Kiwanis Presents Concessions Check To Highline School District
On Tuesday night (May 11) at Burien’s Camp Schoenwald, members of the Highline Kiwanis Club presented a check to the Highline School District for monies earned selling concessions at Highline Stadium.
In the rustic “A-Frame” cabin on the southwest side of the camp, Kiwanis Club President Frank Weise presented a check for $3,829.87 to HSD Interim Athletic Director Jackie Lewis:
According to Weise, this is the 41st year that the Kiwanis Club has raised money for the school district by selling concessions. Club members volunteer at football games, renovate concession stands, buy all the food, then prepare and sell it to fans to help raise funds for local athletic programs.
Lewis, himself a former athlete, reminded everyone how important athletics and coaches are to young people, using his own experiences as an example.
“I’ll never forget my coaches,” he said. “Along with a few teachers, my coaches were the biggest influence on me in school. You can never underestimate the importance of athletics in school.”
The Highline Kiwanis Club is one of more than 6,000 such clubs throughout the world chartered by Kiwanis International.Â Membership is made up of men and women from all walks of life who are genuinely concerned with the “betterment of their community.â€
