During the boys' JV and varsity home basketball games on Friday, January 16, the Hudson High School Student Council held a special fundraiser to support the Student Council Scholarship. Students had the opportunity to participate in duct taping Associate Principal Bob LaCasse to the wall at the cost of one dollar per yard of duct tape. Mr. LaCasse stood on a stool against the wall while students placed their duct tape, and when he was fully stuck on they removed the stool and watched Mr. LaCasse suspend for a few seconds. This enjoyable event will help pay for a scholarship for a deserving senior at the end of the year.
