Centre High School to host Pig Kissing fundraiser
The month of February won’t be “boar”ing for Centre High School students when they get to witness a Centre school employee kiss a piglet.
The pig kissing contest is a fundraiser for the freshman class.
Five staff members, including counselor Jill Day, business teacher Ashley Coirier, superintendent Susan Beeson, science teacher Cindy Wyatt, and agriculture teacher Jon Meyer, will have to wait until Feb. 12 to find out who “hogged” the most student donations and has to kiss a pig.
Day said that she “thinks” she is honored for the opportunity to participate.
“I’m a farm girl so if I have to kiss a pig, I’ll do it,” Day said, “but I definitely want to say I’ve never kissed a pig before, so this would be a first. I hope it’s a cute, little one.”
Centre student Grace Peterson will supply the pig, and freshman class sponsor Morgan Menefee said that “probably whichever lucky little pig she catches that morning” will be the one who gets a smooch.
