Fort Mill Elementary School recently finished its annual Boosterthon Fun Run to support school activities, raising more than $29,000.
As students began soliciting per-lap pledges for a run at the school, administrators offered them a deal: If the students got at least one pledge from all 50 states, they could duct tape the principal and assistant principal to a wall.
With a day of pledges to go, students lacked only Montana. The school put out a call for anyone who knew someone in the Treasure State.
Never miss a local story.
The pledge arrived, so Principal Jeanette Black and Assistant Principal Jocelyn Young kept their word.
Black and Young spent dismissal time on a recent Friday stuck to a wall. They pleaded with students for food, and they begged for help getting down, to no avail.
Until right before the last student left for the day.
No thanks to Montana.
