The CCDHS Science Club just released the design for their 2016-17 fundraiser t-shirt and it features famous Miles City native Maurice Hilleman.



These funds will go towards helping the members of science club travel to and compete in Science Olympiad and Science Bowl where they will defend their title as Regional Champions.

The artwork featured on the shirt is a painting by CCDHS Alumni Gavin Herzog.

The subject of the shirt, Maurice Hilleman, is the most prolific vaccinologist of all time. He and his teams developed vaccines for measles, mumps, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, chickenpox, meningitis, pneumonia and several others. Because of his vaccine work he is credited with saving more lives than any other human being in history; numbers that increase every year. He graduated from Custer County High in 1938, and from Montana State in 1941 before moving to the University of Chicago where he earned a doctorate.

[On a personal note: in the past, I've directly donated to support our local science club, because the last thing I needed was another t-shirt I wasn't going to wear that often... but THIS YEAR, the design is amazing, the shirt is a comfy baseball-style T, and the painting and its subject are something I am proud to wear! I've already bought a set for the family-- please join me in support of this great high school club!]

If you are interested in ordering a shirt (or 10!), they can be directly purchased here. Shirts can be shipped to your home for a small shipping cost, or if you live in Miles City, the shirt(s) will be delivered by a Science Club member (cool, and cheaper): http://www.booster.com/20...&side=back

Only five more days to secure one of these wicked shirts for yourself (and four your closest friends).

A majority of this community enthusiastically supports our local
Sports teams: Cowboys, Cowgirls, Pioneers, and others! This is our chance to show the Science Club that we value STEM activities in Miles City and we are proud of their academic accomplishments.

Let's exceed their expectations, put some money down, and get a sweet shirt commemorating a great Miles Citian. It's a Win-Win.

Don't hesitate-- buy a shirt (or shirts), or donate outright to a great cause!!

This is the last day to snag one of these awesome shirts! Even IF you aren't interested in owning this amazing shirt, please consider donating outright to a great cause: the CCDHS Science Club.

C'mon friends, let's put our money where our mouth is: Academics are important; let's show these students that we support them!

I know Miles City and past alumni love this school and support these students: I challenge you to make the last day of the campaign the best yet! Get a slightly less expensive cup of coffee, and toss the $2 in the direction of our local students.
