Liberty County Pre-K Center staffers on Friday stepped back in time for a “decade dress-up” fundraiser.
Sporting outfits from the 1920s to 1980s, the employees strutted their dated duds down the schools’ main hall as students cheered them on. Each participant paid $3 to take part in the dress-up parade, and all proceeds will support center teacher Verlonna Lowe, who is fighting a cancer diagnosis with aggressive treatments every three weeks.
A long-term substitute teacher has taken over Lowe’s class as she requires three weeks of recuperation following a treatment.
Lowe was touched by the teachers’ and students’ generosity. “I’m overwhelmed by the support my colleagues have given. There are no words to express my gratitude,” she said.
The center has organized other fundraisers for Lowe and employees say they plan to continue the events until she recovers and returns to teaching.
