Rivalry For a Cause — Herndon and South Lakes High Schools are engaging in a competition to see who can collect the most toiletry donations for the Embry Rucker Community Shelter. Toiletry donations (toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, etc.) will be collected at both schools the week of Dec. 15-19. Each item a school collects, regardless of size, will count as one “point” towards the school’s total. The winner will be the high school with the most “points” by tip off of the SLHS-Herndon Boys Basketball game at SLHS on Dec. 19. The principal of the losing school must wear the opposing school’s spirit wear to school on Jan. 5.
