Pack-it In Pink
Ennis volleyball gives back
The greatest part of living in a small town is the support that happens when a person touches your life. The Ennis community has always been a dedicated support system for the school in both athletics, and scholastically, realizing the excellent education our students receive. That supports goes full circle in Ennis. recently, the Ennis High School Volleyball Team, under the direction of coach, Betty Klein gave back by holding a “Pack-it in Pink” night at their home game. Proceeds from baked goods, provided by the athletes were sold to an enthusiastic crowd who also made extra donations. Once again, the Ennis community stepped up for a cause that is so important!
Pack it in Pink is recognized nationally during October’s Breast cancer awareness month, but it takes local involvement to make it happen and the school did just that. EHS recently presented the Madison Meadows Ladies Golf Association a check for $1321 for the Joan Schilling Memorial Scholarship Fund The MMLGa renamed their long-standing annual scholarship in 2018 to honor Joan after she passed away from complications of her decade long battle with breast cancer. Joan was a golfer and a teacher that made an impact on the entire community—she was that “person who touched your life.” Both MMLGa and her fellow teachers wanted her legacy to continue. The Joan Schilling Memorial Scholarship is given annually to a Madison Valley senior. The MMLGa matches an amount taken from the fund annually to give the scholarship.
Through the generosity of the Ennis School and this community, the scholarship can continue for decades in the future. Thank you EHS!
