School Administrators Elevated for Heart Association


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) – A pair of school administrators looked down on their students in a good way Friday as they worked from a lift.

It was all for a great cause as Vandergriff Elementary students in Fayetteville raised more than $13,000 through the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart Program.

And for all of their effort in raising the money, Principal Andrea Sego and Assistant Principal Jay Mirus decided to work from above ground.

“By reaching their goal and exceeding their goal of  $12,000, Ms. Sego and Mr. Mirus, the principals decided to get on a forklift and work from the forklift for the day,” said Courtney Becton, youth market director for the heart association. “So, they’ve been sending messages down and the kids have just loved watching their principals.”

Becton says the program helps students with the importance of heart health and helping others.
