Twenty-seven students who raised the most money during the school’s Math-A-Thon fundraiser were picked to throw a pie in a staff member’s face. Proctor was the school’s top fundraiser, raising $430. As of Thursday, the Math-A-Thon had brought in $6,192 which will pay for field trips and playground equipment. (Sun Journal photo by Daryn Slover)
