 Camino Real Principal Will Take a Pie
   in the Face for Juvenile Diabetes
                          LAS CRUCES – Either Camino Real Middle School Principal Angie

                          Holguin-Dotson or one of the school’s assistant principals, Heather

                          Kingery or James Mulhauser will take a pie in the face to help raise

                          money for the Las Cruces campaign to cure juvenile diabetes.

                                  Each grade level at CRMS will compete October 9-12, 2007 to

see which one brings in the most money for the campaign. The students in that grade level “will

get to vote on which administrator will take a pie in the face at our next pep assembly,” said

CRMS Special Education teacher Brian Kord.

       The pie-in-the-face campaign leads into the fourth

annual Walk to Cure Diabetes, which will be held beginning at

9:00 a.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.) on Saturday,

October 13 at Sonoma Ranch Golf Course in Las Cruces.

       The 2004 and 2005 walks raised about $11,000 total,

with more than 300 walkers participating. The 2006 walk            Will She Get a Pie in the Face?

Juvenile Diabetes," said Brian Kord.
