Principal smooches pig after losing bet

Zilwaukee, MI (WNEM) -

It's something any kid wants to see: a mentor kissing a pig on the snout.

Students at Zilwaukee International Studies School were challenged to raise $12,000 for new supplies.

They accomplished that goal.

As part of the deal, the principal promised to kiss a pig in front of the entire student body. That is exactly what happened Wednesday afternoon.

Principal Tina Munoz bent down and puckered up with Jimmy Dean, who was wearing lipstick.  Then she wiped it off her face to the roaring cheers of the audience.

The students ended up collecting more than $27,000 by selling wrapping paper and food in the community. The money will go toward getting new school supplies.

It's good news the president of the Zilwaukee PTC Council is very proud of.

"It was an exciting day, and I'm glad to be here at Zilwaukee helping the school out," Josie Pignatelli said.

As for the principal, Tina Munoz, she tells us the smooch was fun especially since it was for a good cause.

"It was an experience. Nothing what I thought it would be like. You know, you get yourself a little nervous. But I'm always taking care of my dogs and kissing my dogs at home. So it's just like another pet kissing at home."
