Warrior Walk-A-Thon 2009


Pueblo’s Annual Warrior Walk-A-Thon sponsored by the Hesperidis Club will be April 4th, 2009. All proceeds will be used to purchase medical supplies for the Samual Brownback Clinic in Sudan.

During the last 3 years, the Warrior Walk-A-Thon has raised the following:

  • 2007- $3,026
  • 2008- $2,060
  • 2009- Goal of $3,000

Cris Garang, a Lost Boy from Sudan who has worked with the club for each Warrior Walk-A-Thon and continually returns to Sudan to offer his services to refugees at the Akon Medical Clinic will hand deliver the supplies.

Cris was here on March 4th to discuss the personal tragedies of Sudanese refugees (including his own).  The assembly educated students about the plight of refugees in Akon, Sudan as well as the political situation in Sudan.  Cris offered a viewpoint on life that most students have not been exposed to before. He took the time to personally invite you to support this great cause:

How Can You Help?

Pueblo students can participate in Walk-A-Thon by registering in Room 216.

Everybody else can donate online here.

Surprise At Spirit Assembly

Wilcats & Warriors Cheerleaders
Wilcats & Warriors Cheerleaders

Students were suprised to see some of the University of Arizona Cheerleaders and Wilbur mix it up at our Spring Sports Assembly.  The assembly was to recognize spring sports and promote school spirit.

Students cheered as the Warrior Band played “Bear Down Arizona” and the U of A Cheerleaders were being tossed in the air for some high flying stunts. Later they joined the Spirit Man in a class competition of the Warrior Fight Song.

The Sophomore Class of 2011 was crowned victorious of the Spirit Stick and they rushed the floor in celebration.
