OC students raise money for Stanley Hupfeld Academy

OC’s 49th-annual Spring Sing featured a couple of firsts: the first championship for women’s club Iota Kappa Phi and the start of a philanthropic effort OC students hope will become an annual tradition.

A silent auction raised $7,082.55 for Stanley Hupfeld Academy at Western Village, an inner-city elementary school.

Many OC students serve as mentors there, and children from the school visit campus each year during Earn Your Wings to fly kites and spend the day with OC students.

“Almost everyone on campus has met a kid from Stanley Hupfeld through kite day or tutoring,” sophomore Paige Arter said. “So to have a beneficiary this close to the OC community is great because we are able to put a face with the cause.”
