Letter to the Editor
Thanks for support in Race for Kids

May 23, 2012

Dear Editor,

On May 5, Clarkston Junior High and the Clarkston Foundation co-sponsored the Fourth Annual Chuck Keegan Race for the Kids. This event was created to honor Chuck Keegan, a former Clarkston teacher and track coach who passed away shortly after his retirement. The passion Chuck had for his students when he began his career was still present when he taught his last class. He was an inspiration to both his students and his co-workers. The funds raised from this event provide scholarships for Clarkston students.

This event is more successful every year, thanks in large part to the support of local establishments. We would like to thank the following businesses for their continued support: A+ Teachers Store, Accuracy Temporary Services, Inc., Clarkston Autobody and Towing, FitnessQuest, Graphmark Services, HealthQuest, The Learning Experience, Planned Financial Services, Plaza Beauty Supply, R Dogs Party Rentals, Runnin’ Gear, Salon Williams, Simply Natural Health Foods, Sports Creations, Waterfall Jewelers, and Waterford Hill Flowers.

Donations were provided by Best Impressions, Costco, Dunkin Donuts, Leo’s, Rio Wraps, Subway on Sashabaw Road, and Village Trophy Shop. We are also grateful to Amy Ankrom, Ray Cooper, Michelle Johnson, Claudia Keglovitz, April Kosin, Susan Powers, Michele Przybylski, Bill Rathburg, Debbie Sabo, Wayne Samuel, Alex Sennabaum, Debbie Shotwell, Janet Thomas, and Sue Wilson for their part in making this fundraiser a success.

Lastly, we would like to thank the Keegan family for their continued support of our efforts to honor Chuck and provide scholarships to our students.
