Save a Senior

TAHLEQUAH — Save a Senior has become a big annual event in Tahlequah. After the Tahlequah High School Class of 2014, numbering 218, graduates on May 23, they will all be invited to an all-night party with food, activities and prizes.

This is the 30th consecutive year of Save a Senior, which was begun after a senior was injured in an accident on graduation night.

“It started out small,” said Sheila Fritz, who sits on the organization committee for Save a Senior. “At first, parents just got together and pooled their money.”

The fundraising goal of Save a Senior 2014 is $30,000, though Fritz said it won’t all be spent.

“We try to leave some funds for the following year,” she said. “We had some funds to start with this year, and we don’t want to zero out the account.”
