DID YOU KNOW... Raymond Auto Group supports Sequoit Pride in a huge way? Raymond Chevrolet and Raymond Kia pledged $50,000 over a ten year period. Their first payment allowed Sequoit Pride to paint "home of the Sequoits" on the Route 173 water tower and fund academic, athletic, artistic, and activity opportunities for ACHS students. Thank you, Raymond Auto Group!
