Volleyball Team To Raise Funds for Deceased Science Teacher's Family
Donations collected at Oct. 3 will honor RoseAnn Krygier.
Are you ready for some volleyball? You can catch the Jefferson Township High School girls’ team in action and support a worthy cause on Oct. 3, when the team will hold a fundraiser for the family of RoseAnn Krygier, a high school science teacher who passed away last month after a battle with cancer.
The team will hold the fundraiser at its game against Morris Catholic on Oct. 3 in the high school gym.
“We don’t charge admission, but we will be asking for donations, and anything we make from that and from snack sales with go to Mrs. Krygier’s family,” said Sheridan Culbertson, mother of team captain Paige Culbertson.
Coaches Marc Gaydos and Jane Kirshenbaum are both science teachers at the high school, and suggested the fundraiser to honor one of their own.
“A lot of our players had Mrs. Krygier as a teacher and we wanted to give something back to the family,” Gaydos said. “The girls really appreciate all she did for the school while she was a teacher here. She sacrificed her time away from her family to make Jefferson one of the best places to go to school, even when she was in the last days of her own life.”
All of the girls will be wearing peach ribbons in their hair in honor of uterine cancer awareness, the disease that claimed Krygier's life.
The volleyball team’s record currently stands at 5-5 overall and 3-1 in their conference. The game against Morris Catholic is a conference game, so it’s a meaningful one for the team, Gaydos said.
You can also catch them in action on Thursday in Dover against the Tigers.
