PINK OUT

Black Hawk Warrior Volleyball and Football are teaming up this October to help a fellow Warrior fulfill a wish.

During the following games dates we will be PINKING OUT in honor of Kelly Kupersmith.

Volleyball: October 11th & 13th
Football:  October 14th

Please pack the gym and the stadium these dates and help make this wish a reality, perhaps even send her to the OCEAN of her choice!  We are also selling "Together we are Stronger" pink ribbon sports t-shirts to support her wish. 


Kelly Kupersmith has been a teacher at Black Hawk School District for 26 years.  (31 total teaching years).  She has taught in many areas of the school district from elementary to high school.  She also did some Volleyball coaching for the district.  Mrs. Kupersmith lives in Stockton, Illinois with her husband Bill.  She has four grown kids – Kayla, Ally, Carly, and Kirk.  Many of you remember Kirk when he had a brain tumor when he was 2 years old.  (He is now 20 and is doing well, but continues to work on his health needs).  December, 2015 was a tough month.  Bill had a heart attack – doing great today and they found a cancerous lump on Mrs. Kupersmith.  She had surgery on January 6, 2016, but unfortunately the cancer had spread quite significantly to numerous other parts of her body.  She is currently doing a regiment of chemotherapy to try to control the spread of the cancer.  

It is so important to me to be able to spend my days with my Black Hawk family and students who give me reason to laugh, smile, and fight. I have been with many of the people of the Blackhawk School and community longer then I have been with my own children.   I could not have asked for a more supportive school board, administration, faculty, staff, student body and community to give me the strength I need.  I strive to get to school every day where I feel the most love and support anyone could ever imagine.  My heartfelt thanks to all!
