Eighty-eight hard working students took to their phones during three sessions held on Monday, March 26 and Tuesday, March 27 to reach out to the CBA community on behalf of the Annual Fund.
This effort is a win-win for CBA and for the students: dollars raised help support the operating costs of the school (technology upgrades, financial aid, teachers’ salaries, etc…) and the student callers have an opportunity to hone their communication skills, verbal and written.
Team captains were selected by Principal, Matt Keough, to assemble their fellow callers, communicate the details of the phonathon and to lead the charge to raise funds.
