Shelby Muennink, a parent-teacher association member, said she invited White to speak at the school to give the students a positive role model. When asked if she thought many of the kids actually knew who White was, she asked, "Did you hear them?"

When White was introduced, the students started screaming and clapping their approval. What got the best response, though, were the pies that White and PTA President Carrie Vaughn threw in the face of Principal Jason Perez.

The stunt was all part of the fundraiser. Students are being asked by the PTA to sell Bedlam T-shirts to raise money for basketball and soccer goals at the new school. The top-selling student from each class will get to throw a pie in the face of Perez or sixth-grade teacher Kyle Harrison. White's pie was designed to get the students excited about selling.
