$12K Sponsorship Sends JHS Constitution Team to National Championship

JHS Constitution Team Receives Sponsorship from TAMKO & The Candy House

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

TAMKO Building Products, Inc. and The Candy House are donating $12,000 to the Joplin High School (JHS) Constitution Team to help in their journey to compete at the national We The People competition in Washington D.C. on April 22-25, 2016.
The JHS Constitution Team is working to raise funds for their trip to Washington D.C., but with a total of 15 team members and an estimated trip cost of $1,600 per student, the cost to attend the national competition is quite expensive.

JHS Constitution Team Coach and High School Teacher, William Keczkemethy, said, “I’ve had a few team members come to me and explain that they weren’t sure they could raise the funds needed for their portion of the trip so they were willing to excuse themselves from the competition. It was devastating. But, now they no longer have that burden thanks to the generous donation from TAMKO and The Candy House.” He continued, “I want to express my appreciation for TAMKO and The Candy House. This donation demonstrates how important local businesses are in our education system. When we support local business, these businesses can support local education.”

TAMKO’s CEO and President and new owner of The Candy House, David Humphreys, said, “We think it’s important to support students in our area, especially when they reach this level of national competition. TAMKO has supported the JHS Constitution Team in the past and we are happy to continue that support this year. We wish them the best of luck as they compete in D.C. in April.”
