completed a successful campaign for United Fund of Wabash County. Funds raised this year totaled $3,083. That’s compared to $2,340 from last year.

“Students, staff and faculty all joined in to make this campaign the most successful United Fund campaign to date,” said Jerry Perkins, an assistant professor and United Fund campaign committee member.

In an effort to encourage student participation, faculty and staff participated in a contest to receive a pie in the face for the most money raised. To encourage student involvement, Perkins volunteered to have his head shaved if the pie-in-the-face contest raised $300.

Pam Guthrie, executive director of the Wabash campus, received the most money, therefore receiving a pie in the face. The total raised well exceeded the $300 goal.  Pam received her pie in the face and Jerry got his haircut on Nov. 8 at the Wabash Ivy Tech campus.

“We did have a student who actually did the shaving of the head and the pie throwing. Her name was Kelly Stout,” said Guthrie.

Shannon Niedzwicki, Starr McNally and Jerry Perkins made up the committee that helped raise money for United Fund.
