S O C I A L S E E N Teachers Cup Supports Schools Photos by Ray Sepesy Ballantyne Rotary Club hosted its 14th annual Teachers Cup at Ardrey Kell High School on April 20. An estimated 1,000 people attended the volleyball tournament, which raises money to support students at Ardrey Kell, J.M. Robinson Middle School and four area elementary schools. Faculty members from Robinson as well as Ballantyne, Polo Ridge, Endhaven and Hawk Ridge elementary schools participated in the tournament, along with Ardrey Kell staff. The Ardrey Kell team was victorious, but the elementary schools were winners, too: Proceeds supported their classroom libraries in pre-K through third grade. The event raised more than $5,000, which will also fund college scholarships for Ardrey Kell graduating seniors, including Sophia Habibi who received a $1,000 award at the event. Ballantyne Rotary Club serves communities in need locally, nationally and internationally by providing financial, logistical and leadership resources. Details: 1.
