Mountlake Terrace High School Sports Booster Club has 2 things going on right now to help raise some money.
First, 2010 graduation pictures are available from alkiphotography.com. Julie is the photographer who took the pics of all the graduates accepting their diplomas, and of them in their cap and gown in front of the flags. She is donating $5.00 of every order to the Booster Club.
Also, If you live in Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood or the Lake Stevens area you can get your house painted by Student Painters. Mesih Ahmad is the branch manager for Student Painters who is donating 5% of his summer sales to the Booster Club. When people call (877) 841-6019 for a quote or to hire Student Painters they need to let them know they are from MTHS so that the Boosters gets the 5% donation. The phone number is a call center and the quotes/work is dispersed based on territories so be sure to mention MTHS when calling. He is the only Branch Manager offering this, so only work in his territory will count. You can find more info about Student Painters at studentpainters.net.
Mesih Ahmad has a great story and is making the donation to the MTHS Booster Club because it was a booster club that helped him pay for athletic fees when he was in high school:
My name is Masih Ahmad I am 19 years old. I was born in the war torn country of afghanistan. My dad and Mom both have college degrees they acquired in Russia. My parents and I moved to India when I was 2 because of the Afghan Civil War. Since My parents didnt know the language in India we were really poor all my life. When I was 8 I had my first job cleaning dishes in a local restaurant in New Delhi, India. When I was in the 3rd grade the US embassy was helping out immigrants by moving them to the United States, My dad Applied and we got accepted and flew to the United States February 2001. When I first started school the most important thing that made the transition of the culture shock easier was sports. I made friends and memories becasue I liked to compete and have fun. When I was in the 6th grade my parents and I moved to Everett, WA where I attended Eisenhower Middle school and the eventually Cascade high school. In high school I played football, soccer, track and wrestling. and was the wrestling captain by my senior year. High school sports has impacted my life more than anything. It has taught me how to work hard, work in teams, have discipline, and it has givin me the confidence I need to live my life however I want.
I am a branch manager through studentpainters.net and I run my house painting business and I love it. My motivation to run my business was to pay for school, WSU, but recently my dad got a job for the government and one of the perks he gets is that the first person of the family get college paid for, so I pretty much get a full ride. Since I don’t have any important need for the money I get for the business I want to make a difference somewhere it matters. To me high school was the most important aspect of my life, especially high school sports, but when I was in high school my parents just made enough money to keep the food on the table so all of the sport fees were paid for by the booster clubs and the scholarships, and it wasnt for them I would not be the person who I am today. I want to give 5% of the revenue that comes through the leads from Mt lake terrace high school, back to the school. Money can be made anyday, but I feel better I am making a difference in somebodies life because some one has helped me when I was in high school and I want to do the same.
