Celebrations: Kiss the Pig Contest Pope John Paul II High School, Boca Raton – April 11

Students raised $3,000 to benefit the Brother Mutien-Marie School in Mbalmayo, Cameroon, West Africa, during a contest that saw a teacher kiss a pig. The teacher, Eufrasio Volpe, who heads the Italian Club, did the deed at a pep rally. The pig was on loan from a local farm. Proceeds will pay for annual tuition for 20 children in the remote area. In additional to raising funds for the Cameroon school, Pope John Paul II High School’s student body amassed a record 32,216 community-service hours during the 2013-14 year, with several students exceeding 100 hours. ABOVE: Students with 100-plus community-service hours include (l-r) Jack LaBonte, Mitch Deaunovich, Brian Fallon, Jared Chaloux, Luis Menendez, Stephanie Ferrer, Jonah Fisher, Julie Cruz and Laura McKinney.
