The perfect seat.
When they redid the main gym at Emporia High this summer, one of the biggest changes they made were to the bleachers. The old, wooden bleachers that had been there since the school opened were replaced with brand new bleachers, and the teams and scorer’s table were moved onto the floor with nice, cushioned seats. Score!
As a fundraiser for the chairs, the teams sold sponsorships to the chairs – and those who purchased them could add a message to the back of the seats along with their names. By some stroke of luck tonight, the chair that they brought over to me was the chair my parents sponsored – how perfect was that?
