Andrew Jackson High School Wrestling Receives Brute Earguard Donation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Kershaw, SC – August 27, 2012

The Andrew Jackson High School wrestlers will be hitting the mats with new Brute ClassiX 2 Earguards.

The Andrew Jackson High School Wrestling Program received a donation of Brute ClassiX 2 Earguards from R.E.A.C.H.E.S. The R.E.A.C.H.E.S. non-profit organization recently supported the new Andrew Jackson High School Wrestling Program through the donation of 25 Brute ClassiX 2 Earguards.

Over the last several months, the students of Andrew Jackson High School and the communities of Heath Springs and Kershaw, SC have been working hard to raise the necessary funds in order to fulfill the dream of a beloved teacher and coach that unexpectedly and tragically passed away.

With the generous support of the R.E.A.C.H.E.S. organization, this dream will soon become a reality. This upcoming season, the Andrew Jackson High School wrestlers will be hitting the mats with new Brute ClassiX 2 Earguards.

“We were the only high school in the region without a wrestling team, so this is an exciting opportunity” said head coach, Rob Tomalis. The coach added, “Interest in the wrestling program continues to grow. We would like to thank the R.E.A.C.H.E.S. organization for their donation to the Andrew Jackson High School Wrestling Program and their overall support of wrestling. We strongly believe that the sport of wrestling will have a positive impact on the school and community,” added the coach.
