Help Me "Raise the Hawk"

Dear Mountlake Terrace Community,

My name is Thaddeus Merten.  I am a 3-sport athlete at Mountlake Terrace High School (MTHS) and a Boy Scout.  For my Eagle Project, I want to build school pride and community spirit.  To accomplish this I want to “Raise the Hawk”.  What is  “Raise the Hawk,” you ask?  I want to install a bronze hawk statue at MTHS.  This hawk will have a 4 - 6 foot wing span and stand approximately 2 feet tall (when not mounted).  It will be a statement to all that we are proud to be Hawks.  The cost of this project is approximately $30,000.  To raise the money for this project I am selling personalized tiles which will be mounted on the wall around the hawk.  You can buy a regular size tile for $100 or a large tile for $250.  This is a fun way to show your pride in the MTHS community.  I hope you will join me and help me “Raise the Hawk”!
