New Caney High School Assistant Principal Powell challenged the close to 2000 New Caney High School students to do a fundraiser for the children in need in the New Caney area. The challenge was that if the students raised $1000 he would spend the night on the roof of the school. Well, the students outdid themselves and raised over $2000. Thursday night at 10 pm Powell climbed the ladder to the roof. With a tent set up, a coat and chair he started his part of the bargain. He said he was able to sleep well even though the Grand Parkway traffic, construction and train horns all night. This morning the Principal of the High School served pancakes. Powell will spend the day on the roof until 4 pm. During that time he has changed from an Elf to Santa and back to Mr. Powell as he jogs the perimeter of the roof. He is also Live Streaming the event on Youtube.
