This is the second year that Chief Sealth International High School put on a Seahawk Spirit Dinner/Auction fundraiser, but the first one since the school moved back to its renovated/upgraded permanent campus – and as you can see in our top photo, it all unfolded tonight in the sweeping space known as the Galleria. Its multiple levels allows for surprises to pop up during events – like the cheer squad:
Speakers included school-community leaders like principal John Boyd, PTSA president Amy Daly-Donovan, and school board member Steve Sundquist, but there was even more Sealth student power helping make it hall appen – including the ASB and Senior Class officers at the Dessert Dash table:
Students from Sealth’s acclaimed music program performed as well – the pep band and orchestra in the early going, the honor choir a bit later:
Tonight’s event was presented by the Chief Sealth PTSA, with support from the alumni group Friends of Sealth & Chief Sealth Performing Arts. It was also the occasion for presentation of Community Partner Awards to Friends of Sealth, El Centro de la Raza, and Campana Quetzal. We’ll update this story when the evening’s fundraising total is announced.
