Starting with small car washes their freshman year, the class of 2019 managed to raise over $15,000 during the past four years. With dedication from class council members and their advisors, Mrs. Baumgartner and Mrs. Crump, the senior class is one of the most successful fundraising classes in Waterford High School’s history.


The funds from class council go to things like prom, senior picnic, and any other class events. This year, they are able to have their prom at Bill Miller’s Castle, which costs thousands of dollars to book. Mrs. Baumgartner says that the leftover money from the class goes to student scholarships and a gift back to the school from the class.


Though the class has held numerous events, a big contributor to the funds has been from the vendor fair. From the vendor fees, bake sales, and pizza purchases at the fair, the class raised over $3,000 each year. After starting the vendor fair their sophomore year, more than $9,000 has been raised. Both Mrs. Baumgartner and Mrs. Crump say that the duties of the vendor fair will be passed down to another class next for year.


Mrs. Baumgartner has had nine years of class council experience, and she says that, “This has been the best class council I have ever had. They are very creative and self motivated.” In comparison to previous class councils, this class has managed to go above and beyond. By their junior year, they no longer needed to host big fundraisers because they had met the average amount needed to maintain the class.


From the small fundraisers like Texas Roadhouse night to larger events like LuLaRoe, the class of 2019 has hosted an abundance of successful fundraisers over four years. They want to thank their numerous donors from these years who have provided their services, such as Mr. G’s, Pizzarama, Pepsi, and other volunteers. Not only have the teacher advisors helped a lot, but their members have worked hard as well. For those who have stuck with it all four years, thanks for making the class of 2019 a success.
