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.
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.
