SEA Chick-fil-A Fundraiser a Success

by Johnny Barraza 

During a recent October Chick-fil-a fundraiser–sponsored by the Southeast Academy Booster Club–staff, cadets, and families were all invited to eat, see friends, and support the school. Thanks to the Booster Club, who were set up in the restaurant parking lot, the event was a great success, raising over $400 for our school.

For the first time in a long while, cadets were able to see friends that they haven’t been able to see. One cadet said it was so great to see a friend he hadn’t seen since quarantine, and he shared how this event was a great idea.

Both MSgt. Allard and MSgt. Schafer attended the event. Personally, I found it motivating seeing MSgt. Allard at the fundraiser talking to students and supporting the school. Another cadet said he really appreciated seeing them both there because it motivated him too.

Parents also commented about what a great sight it was to see these two SEA leaders. They said that they admired their dedication and commitment, and that they hoped to plan more events like this in the near future.
