Tampa, Fla. – (January 26, 2016) – Liberty Middle School students, the National Junior Honor Society, and the Future Business Leaders of America teamed up for the fifth year to raise funds for the Calyx and Beau Schenecker Memorial Fund.
The students will present a $5,000 check to Colonel Parker Schenecker and Mrs. Nancy Schenecker (the children’s grandmother) at 3:00 p.m., Thursday, January 28, in the Liberty Middle School media center. School Board members will also be on hand for the presentation.
