Edmond Memorial High School Swine Week

What is Swine Week?

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 of a kidney transplant. 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 37 years, and EMHS students have since raised over $8 million dollars for charity. Last year, we raised $336,328 for The Care Center! Swine Week’s money was able to help The Care Center increase their outreach in order to heal children and their families.
