Tuesday, December 21, 2010 has been proclaimed “Tucker Tuesday” at West Central High School. We will be helping to raise funds to help with Tucker Smith’s medical expenses.
On Monday, December 13, 2010, Tucker was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at Avera Hospital in Sioux Falls. After three days of surgical procedures, Tucker was released on Thursday from ICU and moved to a regular hospital room. Tucker will remain hospitalized at least through December 23, 2010.
Tucker has been an integral member of the West Central Student body. Active as a member of the varsity football team, a mentor, member of the Homecoming Court for 2010 and an active member of the West Central FFA. Tucker was a member of the state winning Ag Communications team in 2008 that advanced to national competition in 2009.
The primary objective of “Tucker Tuesday” is to help raise funds to defray Tucker’s medical expenses. Once released from the hospital, Tucker will remain on some rather costly medications indefinitely.
It’s time, West Central, to get behind one of our own and help Tucker and his family to celebrate the holidays with a few less worries.
Donations may be made to “Tucker Tuesday” by sending them to the West Central FFA or the West Central Letter Club in care of West Central High School, P.O. Box 730, Hartford, SD 57033. You may also donate quickly by going to the West Central FFA website and using the “Donate” button on the right sidebar.
Thank you for your continued support of the West Central FFA Chapter and especially of Tucker during this time of need!
