HUES Talent Show donation
The Hollis Upper Elementary School held a talent and craft show in April. Many 4th, 5th, and 6th graders shared their crafting, dancing, singing and instrument playing talents as well as the much anticipated faculty performance as the finale.
All of the proceeds raised were to support 2020VisionQuest, a local Nashua organization that was founded by Randy Pierce. Randy, who unexpectedly lost his vision as an adult, visited the school in March and gave presentations to students and staff about his life, goal setting and problem solving.
The mission of 2020VisionQuest is to “lead and inspire students and professionals to reach beyond adversity, achieve their peak potential, and achieve a vision beyond your sight”.
Randy was invited back to HUES on May 5 and was presented with a check for the proceeds from the talent show for $2889.11. Those proceeds will support two visually impaired organizations: Future in Sight as well as Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
