Principal earns his stripes with duct tape activity

By The Herald Staff | 5/7/2014

RICHMOND — Shenanigans were afoot this week at Central Heights High School, and Tom Horstick seemed to be the mastermind behind it all.

The student body gathered Tuesday to duct-tape Horstick, high school principal, to a wall — six inches off of the ground — Amanda Stinebaugh, Central Heights science teacher, said. The unusual school activity was to help raise money for the special education and science departments for the school, she said. Students were able to purchase a piece of duct tape to apply to Horstick and the wall.

RICHMOND — Shenanigans were afoot this week at Central Heights High School, and Tom Horstick seemed to be the mastermind behind it all.

The student body gathered Tuesday to duct-tape Horstick, high school principal, to a wall — six inches off of the ground — Amanda Stinebaugh, Central Heights science teacher, said. The unusual school activity was to help raise money for the special education and science departments for the school, she said. Students were able to purchase a piece of duct tape to apply to Horstick and the wall.

Horstick was successfully taped to the wall in about 17 minutes, Stinebaugh said. Local shopping centers donated the duct tape for the fundraiser, she said.

Later Tuesday, Horstick then treated the students to a trip to Peachwave Frozen Yogurt, 1410 S. Main St., Ottawa. The frozen treats were to reward them for being a great student body, he said.
