Fourth grader Fisher Leftwich was the principal of the day while Walker Hiatt, first grader, was the assistant principal of the day recently at White Plains Elementary School.
The two settled into their lofty positions as a result of raising money for the school. Fisher was the top salesman during White Plain’s school fundraiser and Walker was runner-up.
There were other incentives for the students who did well in fundraising.
Third- thorugh fifth-place students chose their favorite special area class to attend for three days in a row. Special area classes at White Plains are: Art, music, media, computer lab, and physical education.
These students were Madison Grey, Bethany Williamson and Liam Hazelwood. Also, the top 12 students will travel to Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem to cheer on the Wake Forest girl’s basketball team in November. They will enjoy free food and the game with another Wake Forest student athlete. The following students will attend: Fisher Leftwich, Walker Hiatt, Madison Grey, Bethany Williamson, Liam Hazelwood, Riley Hylton, Anna Flippen, Tristyn Harris, Natalie Puckett, Kendall Ring, Sadie Draughn, and Skylar Hege.
