Fiesta is a time for celebration and, at Harlandale High School, it is also a time for giving. Ten pairs of employees teamed up to raise money for this year’s Life Skills Prom. Each department at the campus chose two people to run for Mr. and Ms. HHS Fiesta 2013 and each couple was responsible for soliciting donations. The ones who raised the most would be crowned as the winners.
This year’s Mr. and Mrs. HHS Fiesta 2013 are Mr. James Villarreal and Ms. Linda Balles of the Life Skills Department. Coming in second was Coach Frank Aguilar and Coach Jaclyn Contreras. Rounding out the top three couples were Ms. Ruth Falcon and Mr. Jeremey Gutierrez from the Social Studies Department.
Together, the couples raised more than $3,000. All the proceeds will be used for the Life Skills Prom on May 11 in the Harlandale High School cafeteria.
