The Vanguard School Hosts Eagles Pep Rally

Tuesday, December 4, excitement filled the Vanguard School Activities Center Gymnasium at The Vanguard School’s Eagles Super Bowl Ring Pep Rally. Only one night earlier, millions of fans watched as a special Vanguard School family received a unique gift and our Eagles triumphed over the Redskins in a much needed 28-13 victory.  

Vanguard School parents, Jim and Patti Gillece, were selected out of almost 6 million entries in the first-ever Eagles Autism Challenge Super Bowl Ring Sweepstakes to receive the grand prize of an authentic Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl ring! Jim and Patti, along with their three children – Trey, who is a Vanguard School Senior, Griffin and Kendall – decided to turn this momentous occasion into a vehicle for good. With help and support from the Eagles organization and the Gillece Family, The Vanguard School hosted a pep rally to provide students and staff with the rare opportunity to try on the Super Bowl Ring and pose for photographs with Swoop and Eagles Cheerleaders.
