Chris’s cocoa quest will happen, thanks to the folks at Santa Rosa Middle School.
The Rincon Valley Middle School community lost one of their most stellar student athletes this week when eighth grader Chris Pierpoint suffered a fatal brain hemorrhage. (Read about Chris here: http://bit.ly/ddfYbs)
One of the many, many stories told to me when I visited Rincon Valley and spoke with folks who knew and loved Chris was this one: He was a regular volunteer on campus, helping wipe down tables to earn coveted coupons for a free hot cocoa. It was Chris’s plan to buy the whole school a round of hot chocolate at the end of the year.
Despite his loss, that will happen.
The parent group at Santa Rosa Middle School today donated 900 cups and hot chocolates for the Rincon community to toast Chris at a planned memorial this Tuesday.
