Ottumwa Superintendent takes the ice bucket challenge

Ottumwa Community Schools Superintendent Davis Eidahl takes the ice bucket challenge.

The viral ice bucket challenge has made its way into the Ottumwa Community Schools System.

Ottumwa Community Schools Superintendent, Davis Eidahl, accepted the challenge from Iowa State Senator Mark Chelgren.

The ice bucket challenge is designed to raise money and awareness for ALS research.

Eidhal completed the challenge and made a donation in front of the Evans Middle School student body.

â??And again regardless of your position or title or role in the Ottumwa schools we are all part emphasizing compassion, respect, and responsibility,â?? said Eidhal.

Superintendent Eidhal in return challenged former Evans Middle School principal Dave Harper.

He also challenged the entire bulldog broadcast team at Evans Middle School to complete the challenge.
