McKinney Christian Academy was named the overall winner after receiving the most votes for its school during the program that ran from September through early November. Parents, students and faculty helped support their school by texting MUSTANGS to the designated sweepstakes number throughout football season. Thirty-one schools throughout Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas participated in the competition.
“We are thrilled to be named the grand prize winner, and very thankful to Super 1 Foods,” said Judy Collins, athletic director for McKinney Christian Academy. “We were very excited about promoting our school through texting, and were able to create a lot of school spirit by getting everyone involved. We checked the leaderboard often and had a tremendous amount of support. We look forward to doing more for our students and our school with the donation.”
Through the Cash 4 MY HS program, Super 1 Foods donated some $40,000 to local high schools.
“Super 1 Foods is committed to our communities, and we are excited this program will be able to help local schools, students and athletes in areas where we operate,” said BGC President and CEO Rick Rayford. “We congratulate McKinney Christian Academy and wish them the best of luck.”
The McKinney Christian Academy Mustangs football team entered the playoffs this week, and will compete against First Baptist Academy of Dallas Saturday night at 6 p.m.
