Holt County TeamMates hosted an end of the school year Pizza Party at the O’Neill Public Schools Central Office. TeamMates Mentors and Mentees were joined by the Board of Directors and Coordinator for a pizza dinner, followed by a crazy shoe search! Everyone present was instructed to throw one of their shoes in a giant shoe pile in the middle of the room. Then each person picked a shoe from the pile and searched for its owner! When the dust settled, the TeamMates went around the room and introduced the person whose shoe they had found and introduced them to the rest of the group by telling how they were a part of Teammates!
The evening continued as TeamMates matches shared some of their favorite mentoring moments together. Honorary medallions were presented to the Senior TeamMates who were graduating in May. Special recognition was also given to the Mentors that had met with their mentees 24 or more times throughout the school year. The students went home with new TeamMates backpacks and new memories made with their fellow Holt County TeamMates.
