This past summer, one of our former student athletes, Michael Kings, was involved in a serious car accident that almost cost him his life. Michael was a 4.0 student and a member of the basketball team for four years. He was planning on attending Penn State Harrisburg this fall until the accident occurred. He was hospitalized on July 25th in Lancaster. He then progressed down to Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Center, where he spent every day rehabilitating for several hours. Finally, at the end of September, he was released to come home for the first time since the accident. Mike has fought very hard to make a full recovery, but he knows that he still has a long road ahead of him.
The whole process has been very hard on Mike and his family, but they continue to battle through it. The GS Boys’ Basketball Team and its booster club is looking to support the family and Mike financially by raising funds through a first ever event. We are going to hold a “Mike Kings Night” on Monday December 16th, which is our first home game.
In preparation for the night we are selling Mike Kings t-shirts to help raise funds for the family. We hope to see the people who attend this game wearing Mike’s t-shirt in support. The t-shirts cost $10 and the proceeds from the shirts will go directly to the family. ALL T-SHIRT SALES WILL BE PRE-ORDER. If you are interested, please fill out the attached form and send it through our school mail or drop off at the high school for me with the payment. You can also email me the sizes that you would like, but again I need the money for the shirt before ordering you one. Orders will be accepted from now until Wednesday, December 4th. The shirts will also be sold during all HS lunches if you want to stop down.
We hope to see a large amount of students, faculty, and community member come together to help support one of our own SPARTANS! Please pass this along to all family and friends, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Below is a picture of Mike for those who don’t know him.
