It’s hard to keep a secret. Just ask the handful of people, including me, who received advance notice that Kalmiopsis Elementary School had won $100,000 in U.S. Cellular’s contest.

It was even harder for  PTO fundraising chairwoman Cindy Schofield who, along with Principal Helena Chirinian, was the first to receive the news.

“I just cried when I found out,” Cindy said. “I didn’t think we’d get it.”

That wasn’t the case, she said, at the height of the PTO’s efforts to get people to vote in U.S. Cellular’s national “Calling All Communities” Internet contest.

“When we were out there, standing outside the stores, doing all we could, begging people to vote, I was confident we’d win,” she said. “Once it was all over, I thought ‘Nah, we don’t have a chance.’”
