Top Sellers Earn Limo Ride

knapplimoThese students got to attend the limo lunch ride to CiCi’s pizza for being the top sellers during our T.C. Knapp fundraiser.  The students were so happy to ride in the limo.  All of the students were so excited because they have never had the opportunity to ride in a limo.  They thought it was so cool.  One student said, ” When I get older I am going to buy a limo!”   What great memories for all of them.
