Indian Lake High School students and staff are customizing their assigned parking spaces in support of a high school teacher.
The ILHS Key Club is offering a “Paint Your Parking Space” fundraiser to help offset the cost of cancer expenses for math teacher Amber Shively, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in the spring.
Key Club President Amber Seeley, a senior, approached school administrators after seeing the idea on social media.
“I just thought it was a fun way to build school spirit and support Mrs. Shively,” Seeley said.
Students must submit to Assistant Principal Dave Coburn a proof of their design and pay $25 to the ILHS Key Club. Then students can decorate their space during non-school hours with their own supplies. Spaces must be painted over in black at the end of the school year. Several students already painted their spaces over Labor Day Weekend.
Key Club Advisor Jen Ignarski said the activity had raised more than $300 by Sept. 5. The goal is $1,000.
