Several high school students helped with the auction as well. Pictured are Emma Bailliez, Ryan Wood, band director, Zackary Woodard and Miah Malin. Here they are raising the bid on Mr. Wood’s creation of Oreo balls which he is famous for making and by all accounts are delicious.
Arthur Lovington Atwood Hammond High School was the setting Saturday evening, April 9, for the ALAH Fine Arts Boosters Dessert Theater.

Other seniors participating with chorus and band were: Kaitlyn Curran, Quentin Day, Tiffany McClain, Michael Miller, Mallory Nichols, Payton Rawlins, Kiya Rhodes, Emma Sausman, Daisy Taylor, Quinn Taylor and Zackary Woodard,.
A lively auction with Lyle Dorjahn as auctioneer and with the help of basketball coach Brad McGill, a few parents and some students raised quite a bit of money for the Fine Arts Department at the end of the evening right before the high school band played their final number, Marches of John Williams.
In total, several thousand dollars were raised that will be well used for our students.
