Pucker Up Miss Piggy

The three principals at Ennis Junior High School held up their end of a bargain Monday when they each had to kiss a pig during the school’s pep rally.
The three principals at Ennis Junior High School held up their end of a bargain Monday when they each had to kiss a pig during the school’s pep rally.
Principals Orlando Vargas, William Stewart and Ryan McCabe, participated in the stunt to help raise money for the PTO of EJHS. For three weeks, students were able to put money in one of three jars, said Rylee Necuza, a student at EJHS.
Each jar represented one of the principals. The principal who had the most money in his jar got to kiss the pig, she said.
However, neither the students nor the principals knew that all three principals would end up kissing the pig. The amounts in each jar were so similar that PTO members decided it would only be fair to make all of them pucker up, said PTO member Elizabeth Webster.
The money raised will be used for student rewards and teacher appreciation, she said. The total amount raised was $248.01, Webster said.
The event took place as part of a pep rally, during which the band and cheerleaders performed. There was also a hula-hoop contest for students, followed by a contest for the coaches, principals and counselors.
The students were excited throughout the pep rally, but the crowd seemed especially enthusiastic when their principals got to kiss the pig.
“I love pep rallies; they’re really fun,” said Melany Rejcek, an EJHS cheerleader.
She also said she thought watching the principals kiss the pig was hilarious.
All three principals maintained a positive outlook through the whole ordeal.
Assistant Principal Ryan McCabe seemed to have a lot fun with the experience.
“It was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life, except the pig’s snout was cold and wiry,” McCabe said.
