During a benefit last weekend Orangefield students and faculty along with family and friends in the community came together to raise money for Chad Coulter.
Coulter is a science teacher at the high school who is battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He's been in Orangefield I.S.D. for more than twenty years, most of them at the junior high.
On Monday, junior high students were not allowed to wear "Halloween" costumes to school, but they were allowed to dress like a super hero. A group of parents at the benefit sparked the idea that the kids could purchase green capes and wear the benefit t-shirts representing #TeamCoulter.
And they embraced it! Coach Coulter became their super hero.
During the benefit, the community raised more than $35,000. Some of the entertainment for the day was provided by the junior high students. Below you can see the talents of Cody Strause, a beat box machine.
