History

EMHS Swine Week 2015 Total

Edmond Memorial’s annual community service project, Swine Week, began in 1986 when a small group of students decided to raise money for a friend in need. The students approached the principal, who supported the endeavor and even agreed to kiss a pig. $3,000 was raised, the principal kissed a pig, and Swine Week was born. 

Flash forward 34 years, and EMHS students have since raised over $6.5 million dollars for charity. Last year, we raised $479,801 for Make Promises Happen! Swine Week’s money was able to help Make Promises Happen build a conference center that will soon be the central meeting place for many camp activities.

2019 Swine Week Recipient

2019 marks the 34th year of serving our community through this philanthropic venture, and we would deeply appreciate your support in our mission to help this year’s recipient, Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County, an organization dedicated to providing a safe, positive place for kids through dynamic programs and a nurturing staff. the Club empowers youth to make the right decisions.

In 1995, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County opened to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who needed a positive influence to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizen. This organization continued to expand, and now serves 800 kids every day through their after school programs.

Common Thread Recipient:

Additionally, each year, all three Edmond High Schools select one organization as a Common Thread to receive 5% of each school’s final totals. This year, our Common Thread recipient is the Pivot Inc.. The purpose of the organization is to advocate, educate and guide youth and families to make a positive difference in their lives.
