In the days leading up to the event, students eagerly purchased shirts to participate in the school-wide white out. Student Council sold 200 shirts. On the Thursday of the event, students sported Merion pride all day. Students from all grades filled the gym after school. Goldie the Golden Bear encouraged cheering and school pride throughout the competition!
