I hope all of you (especially the baseball players from our class) will take a moment to read the letter posted below & consider making a donation to the cause.
Consider this: This coming Tuesday, we will witness history as a black man is sworn in as President of the United States. There is someone from our class who knows a little bit of such things. Many of you may not know that our very own Sam St. Phard was the very first black Student Council President in Slidell High’s history. So, I guess you could say that long before the US has Barak, we had Sam! I think that’s something of which our class can be proud!
So Tuesday, as we bear witness to history in the making, I’m hoping you’ll consider making a donation to the Baseball boosters, maybe in Sam’s name even, and harken back on that historic event in our own school’s history.
Here is the letter:
Dear SHS Friends:
Slidell High School baseball recently won a grant providing lights for the baseball field.
The grant, through major league baseball, covers expenses to purchase the lights and
poles. Installation of the lights is not covered by the grant. The installation costs are
extensive. The Slidell Baseball Booster Club has always raised money to assist the
program and facilities with various uniform needs, field maintenance, facility upgrades
and equipment. The expenses for installation of the lights far out weigh any cost needs
presented in the past. We need your help to insure that the Slidell High School baseball
field shines bright this season and into the future.
This project is changing history. This is Slidell High School’s 100th year and lighting the
baseball field is a great way start another century of excellence. We hope that you will
help us make history and be a part of Slidell Baseball for years to come.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this project and we hope that you
will help us bring light to Slidell Tiger Baseball.
