A T-shirt sale drive at Penn-Trafford schools after the stabbings at Franklin Regional Senior High School generated a $4,133 profit that P-T officials are donating to their neighboring district.

Coordinated by high school business teacher Kim Stefkovich, students in April helped to sell 723 “FR Strong” shirts that included the tag line “You are Warriors” over 10 school days. Stefkovich worked with Sportswear Solutions in Trafford and Big Frog Custom T-Shirts in Hempfield Township to sell shirts with a design she prepared with art teacher Jen Haberberger.

“It was just overwhelming the amount of support we got,” Stefkovich said. “It was amazing.”

Some parents and school resource officer David Meyers, who is a Franklin Regional graduate, also helped to collect shirt orders, Stefkovich said. She also credited a P-T senior, Bryce Tramuta, for helping her to organize the shirt drive.

Penn-Trafford officials are preparing to send a check to the Franklin Regional School District, which has been dealing with the aftermath of an attack that injured 20 students and a security guard on April 9. A sophomore student is accused of the attack.

Franklin Regional officials will determine how to use the money, Stefkovich said.
