Teachers brave the dunk tank on Disability Awareness Day to raise money for senior heading for the Special Olympics World Games

Dunk after dunk, five good-natured Pioneer High School teachers hit the water Wednesday while a circle of students and staff cheered the tennis balls that struck the target.

It was all for a good cause during Club UNIFY‘s Disability Awareness Day.

Dozens of Pioneer teachers raised money to help send senior track star Lawrence Robuste to the Special Olympics World Games, and five got the dubious privilege of representing the faculty in the dunk tank.

Luckily, the water was warm, said teachers Shannon Sherman (dressed in goggles, pajamas and a life jacket) and Michele Macke (in tiara, white gloves and pearls).

The dunk tank took place outside school during lunchtime. Then in the auxiliary gym, members of Club Unify sponsored a Disabilities Awareness Day which offers students the chance to learn about disabilities through their own hands-on experience.
