Get involved with the Sand Lizard Foundation
There are many ways for everyone to be involved with Sand Lizard Foundation and show your support for Dardanelle High School.
Scholarship Spirit Ribbons
Every fall Scholarship Spirit ribbons are sold at each of the four Dardanelle schools and at Berry Drug on Union Street. Spirit ribbons are a tradition that goes back decades in the Dardanelle school system and they have returned to raise funds for Sand Lizard Foundation. Minimum $1 contribution per ribbon.
Get your scholarship spirit ribbon; wear it proudly all week long and at the game - home or away - to show your pride in our Dardanelle Sand Lizards.
DHS Class Challenge
The class of 77 issued a challenge to all other classes initially for the 2019-20 school year. Which class could raise the most money for Sand Lizard Foundation?
For 2019-2020, the class of 1979 won having raised over $3,100. Second place went to the class of 1980 and third place to the class of 1970. Fourth place went to the class of 1977.
For 2020-2021, the class of 1978 won raising $2,000. Second place went to the class of 1978 and third place went to the class of 1977. Fourth place went to the class of 1970.
The class challenge begins on June 1 each year and continues through May 31 of the following year. During the football homecoming pep rally the trophy is awarded to the winning class. The trophy is displayed at the high school.
Membership in Sand Lizard Foundation, contributions for scholarships as well as dollars given directly to the class challenge all count toward the class challenge. Help your class get your year added to the trophy.
Sand Lizard Moms
Once a Lizard always a Lizard! It is not just a saying. It is a way we tell our scholarship winners we are always thinking of them. Sand Lizard Moms is a group of volunteers who maintain contact with these students year round.
Sand Lizard Moms call, write and visit with the scholarship winners. They take them to breakfast, lunch and meet them in local coffee shops to ask how the scholarship winners are doing.
One scholarship winner said, "I had won several scholarships from organizations when I graduated. Sand Lizard Foundation is the only group that has followed up and asked how I am doing".
That's a part of being a Sand Lizard. Want to be a Sand Lizard Mom? Complete the message form on our contact page and we will gladly welcome you.
