Alexander Valley School (AVS) Principal Matt Reno kissed a 300-pound pig on June 1 at a school assembly.

The sensational swine event was part of a bet that Reno made with AVS students in 2019 regarding a jog-a-thon school fundraiser.

Reno said that if AVS students were able to raise over $17,000 for the school’s jog-a-thon then he’d kiss a pig. Students were able to raise $17,500 in 2019, however, the bet was placed on hold due to COVID-19.

Reno finally fulfilled his bet on a sunny Tuesday morning with the Biasotti family’s pig.

Both parties involved in the kiss were a bit apprehensive at first, however, with some coaxing from the Biasotti’s and cheers from the students, Reno was able to kiss the pig.
