With lines almost out to the cafeteria doors, Decatur’s 9th annual Taco Night fundraiser was a major success. On Feb. 6, countless members of both the school and community streamed through the high school doors for $1 tacos, rice, beans, beverages, and desserts.

Taco Night is the school’s largest fundraiser. It is sponsored by SonRise Church and staffed by church volunteers and cafeteria workers. Though this year’s event ran out of rice and lettuce, and almost dessert, by 6:00 p.m., around $8,000 was raised for the school, the most money ever raised from the event.

Administrators Tom Zimmer, Katherine Cater, Trevor Hill, and Leland Green attended, and Superintendent Mr. Louis Taylor also came out to support the event.

Each year, there is a class competition at Taco Night. When people pay for tacos, sides, drinks, or desserts, they put their money not in a register, but in boxes labeled “9th grade,” “10th grade,” “11th grade,” and “12th grade.” This year, the seniors won, just barely beating the freshmen.
