Welcome to Branchville High School
Pushing for a Purpose
Thanks to the non-profit organization, PUSHING FOR A PURPOSE, Branchville High School 9th grader, Schaffie Rogers, received a very special Christmas surprise on Tuesday, December 16th. The founder of Pushing for a Purpose, Mr. Michael Teague, presented Schaffie and his mother with a check for $500. Schaffie was selected from among several 9th grade students who wrote a one page essay on the topic, "What Would I Do If I Won $500". Mr. Teague started the organization as a way of giving back to his community by helping students and families with less than ideal financial circumstances. He states, "I remember what it was like for me in school. Not always having some of the basic necessities and other items that some of my peers had. It brings me joy to bless them."
