WARSAW — Three Warsaw Community Schools’ elementary students participated in Teacher’s Credit Union’s Dash for Cash event on Jan. 20.
The event was held in the Tiger Den at the Warsaw Community High School boys’ basketball home game against Concord.
Prior to the halftime event, WCS administrators April Fitterling and Dr. David Hoffert gathered with WCS board members Elle Turley, Brad Johnson and Matt Deuel to recognize TCU Branch Manager Karen Mayer and TCU staff for the ongoing support.
Three ticket winners were announced during halftime. Third-grader Aaron Jones pulled the $10 envelope and kindergartner Logan Moore pulled the $20 bill. The golden ticket and grand prize of participating in TCU’s $1,000 Dash for Cash was claimed by fourth-grader Waldo Nelson.
The crowd cheered for Nelson as he dashed across the gym floor to gather the scattered bills and stuff them in his shirt and pockets. Within the 30-second time limit, he gathered $227.
