Pin It

Runners And WalkerOn Saturday, November 16th, Triple C School will be holding its first Ena Merren Memorial 5K Walk/Run and is inviting all Triple C parents, staff, students, alumni, friends, walkers and runners of all ages to come out to support this event. All proceeds raised from this event will go towards the Ena Merren Memorial Scholarship Fund.  This scholarship fund is very important for many families. Past and present recipients of this scholarship would not have been able to attend Triple C School without it. This scholarship has been named after one of Triple C’s founders, Miss Ena Merren, who assisted students in coming to Triple C School from when they first opened their doors in 1941.

One of those children, who will forever be grateful to her for her investment in him, is Mr. Norman Bodden. Mr. Bodden attended Triple C School and graduated in 1953 only because of the singular vision of this godly woman to give him the start in life that he so deserved and wanted. “I urge and encourage everyone to strongly support this Scholarship Fund because it was through Miss Ena’s interest in me and determination to assist me in paying my tuition that I had the privilege of attending Triple C High School, gaining a Diploma in 1953 which back in those days was almost the equivalent of a college degree today,” stated Mr. Norman Bodden.  “Because of the high standard of education I received at Triple C High School I was able to find a good position with the airlines where I began as a ticket agent and eventually became the Managing Director.”

Event day registration for the walk/run will start 7:00 a.m. and the walk/run will begin at 7:30 a.m. at Triple C School and will take walkers to the intersection of Mulberry Dr. & Walkers Rd and back to Triple C School. Pre-registration can be done at the school or forms can be submitted via email to [email protected] The Pre-Registration fee is $20 and team registration is $80 (4 member team). Event day registration will be $25 per person. Corporations and families are encouraged to register teams as there will be a team competition for families and corporations where the first place team in each category will be rewarded. Awards will be presented to the lady, gentleman, boy and girl (18 and under) who receives the best race time. The first 100 registered walkers/runners will receive a free t-shirt.
