“Some overcame that, some gave that they got what they could,” said Nicholas Andrews, the class president.

Although one would think it’s to pay for their caps and gowns or some big graduation party, the reality was a fundraiser to support a child called Maddox Pearl.

“Maddox is an elementary school student who is battling a brain tumor and is in the hospital fighting so we thought if we raised more money for him it would help his fight,” Andrews said.

Their fight is well known in this community, you will see “Team Maddox” on social networks or as a sticker on cars. So it was no surprise that this fundraiser grew beyond the walls. from Albion High School.

“We had an older guy give us $20 (about 340 Mexican pesos) just to drive around the front circle of our school. It gives us goosebumps, we’re amazed how a small community can come together and support someone like that.”

These seniors they wanted to make their mark after losing much of their high school experience during the pandemic and show that taking care of your community is the “Way of the Eagle”.

“I am glad that we are not the covid-19 generation. We are the class that brought change to the community and I think we will be remembered for this, it’s good,” Andrews said.
