    Mepham Cheerleaders Earn Nationals Bid

    After competing locally and regionally in several competitions, the Mepham Varsity Cheerleading team earned a spot at nationals.
    “With hard work and determination, these wonderful ladies succeeded their goal and achieved that bid to nationals and a second place trophy,” said coach Eliza Dall.
    They will compete against the best in the nation from Feb. 6-7, at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

    Mepham Seniors are Champions for Charity

    Optimum Community visited Mepham High School recently to present the seniors who participated in the fall Senior Service Learning Project with a $1,000 donation to their charity (Tuesday’s Children) in recognition of their participation in the Charity Champions contest.  

    The Charity Champions is a contest which promotes volunteerism and helps students raise money for a charity of their choice.

    Since September, seniors in the Participation in Government classes and the Senior Experience program at Mepham have worked together to raise more than $7,000 for Tuesday’s Children. The organization has made a long-term commitment to every individual impacted by the events of Sept. 11, 2001 as well as those who have been impacted by terrorist incidents worldwide. They did so by selling 275 flags for Mepham’s first Field of Honor which was displayed on the front lawn of the school from Nov. 1 to Dec. 9.
    In addition, students spearheaded Mepham’s most successful Battle of the Classes to date while also holding “penny wars” to raise money for Tuesday’s Children. Many students traveled to New York City on Veterans Day to make care packages at Tuesday’s Children’s headquarters. After learning about the events that led to Sept. 11 for three weeks in their classes, all of the students traveled to NYC to visit The National 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

    Assemblyman David McDonough joined Optimum Community in commending the students for their efforts, and the students and teachers presented the representatives from Tuesday’s Children with a $1,000 check. Mepham’s project will now be eligible to win an additional $5,000 for Tuesday’s Children if it is selected as the regional winner in the spring.

    For videos and photos of the event, visit optimumcommunity.net/mepham after Jan. 27 or tune in to see the Neighborhood Journal segment on Optimum TV channel 118 on Jan. 31 at 7 p.m.
