Top Schools for HPS 2019 United Way Campaign

Ensuring that community families have access to resources and programs for various needs was the focus during the recent United Way Campaign at Hickory Public Schools.

The investment in our community is both valuable and rewarding, according to Beverly Snowden, HPS communications director and district campaign chairperson. “Recognizing that many of our students and their family members receive assistance through the efforts of the agencies affiliated with United Way—is a true blessing and speaks to the wonderful community collaboration in serving others.”

The school district raised $11,576.00 during the campaign—a sizeable amount, but the HPS campaign leaders will strive for higher results next year. “With knowing that the United Way dollars provide shelter, food, counseling and hope for many of our school families, as well as families from every corner of Catawba County, how can we not give from our heart and soul?” said Snowden.

Out of the nine schools in the district (not including the administrative office donations), the top two schools during this year’s 2019 United Way Campaign resulted with Viewmont Elementary as the first place school winner with the most donations: $1,909.92; and the second place school winner for donations is Hickory Career and Arts Magnet High School (HCAM): $1,558.00.

These schools ran an excellent campaign among all the school employees. The campaigns were led by Viewmont’s United Way Representative and teacher, Denise Knowles, with the active support of her principal, Jeff Hodakowski; and Hickory Career & Arts Magnet High’s (HCAM) United Way Representative and teacher, Mary Lee Tosky, with the active support of her principal, Eric Puryear.

Hickory Career and Arts Magnet High also led the district with the highest number in Fair Share Giving during this year’s campaign.

In addition to the top two school winners in the HPS United Way Campaign, Grandview Middle School included the students in this year’s campaign with a “pennies war.” The students brought in more than $210 to contribute to the campaign—as the students expressed their desire to also help community neighbors. The campaign at Grandview was led by United Way Representative and office staff/treasurer, Cindy Clark, with active support from her principal, Dr. Jennifer Griffin.

Congratulations to Viewmont and

 HCAM for

leading the way with the

HPS 2019 United Way Campaign!
