Celebrating the Triumphs of DTOT! Graduating Seniors
Celebrating our DTOT! Graduates
Graduation season is around the corner, and we cannot help but celebrate our graduating DoThatOneThing! Council members!
Despite busy school schedules, these high school seniors have selflessly spent countless hours fighting pediatric cancer and making a difference in the community. Whether they are gifting presents to patients at local hospitals or volunteering at our events, these kids express a level of kindness and generosity that changes lives.
Back in April at our annual DTOT! Council banquet, the students presented us with a check for $3,390. The triumph of their fundraising efforts puts our foundation one step closer to advancing innovative new treatments for pediatric cancer.
Now, we get the chance to recognize their academic success, presenting a total of 173 chords to graduating senior council members throughout the month of May. Our students reach across 9 different Corpus Christi high schools including: Foy H. Moody High School, Incarnate Word Academy, W. B. Ray High School, Veterans Memorial High School, Richard King High School, London ISD, Mary Carroll High School, H.M. King High School and Roy Miller High School.
Some of our DTOT! Council members were given scholarships as a special way to thank them for going above and beyond in their support of TOKC. The James A. Ragan Humanitarian Award and the James & Mecklin Ragan Award for Courage are meant to recognize and celebrate our students’ academic success and dedication to James’ vision.
TOKC is thankful for everything our DTOT! Council members helped accomplish. We congratulate them and know that they will continue to do that one thing wherever they go next!
The DTOT! Councils are generously sponsored by H-E-B Tournament of Champions.
