EL PASO INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT Aug. 5, 2021 –– Check out the latest box of Tony the Tiger’s Frosted Flakes for a grrreat picture of Wiggs Middle School students. 

The December 2019 picture of Wiggs students was taken during an event for Mission Tiger and Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation announcing the donation of $200,000 for sports equipment to EPISD middle schools. Tony the Tiger also visited Brown and Guillen middle schools for the announcement of the donation.

“We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to have Kellogg’s Tony the Tiger and pro football hall of famer LaDainian Tomlinson come talk to our kids and give our District money for sports equipment,” said Wiggs Middle principal Tim Luther. “It was amazing to see our kids on the box. We’re lucky to be recognized like this.”
