Who’s This Local Celebrity Dancer or Sports Player?
The local middle school sports program funding was cut by the Fort Mill School board when the economy headed south a couple years ago. Parents formed a district wide school booster organization (FMSDAB) to raise money and keep middle school sports in the schools. One of the major funding activities by the middle school booster program is a Dancing with the Stars style fundraiser.
