I want to give a job well done by the staff and students at Cannelton Myers Grade School for their efforts and results in raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
This is a charity my family contributes to each month because they don’t charge the families of children facing life threatening illnesses. When a family gets devastating news that their child could die from the diagnosed disease it is nice to have a place to turn to that offers state of the art treatment and to find out they don't charge for the treatment.
My thanks to the kids and staff at Myers Grade School isn't only for giving to a wonderful charity but for obliterating their goal and raising $4,007.52 which was $1,000 more than they planned to raise. It takes a lot of dedicated people to do something like this. It isn't easy to go around asking for pledges later following up with collecting the money at any age, but especially for young people learning how to deal with the public.
I hope many people in the community speak to these students as you see them in town and tell them how proud you are at what they accomplished.
I know I am proud of them and hope their example leads to more donations to a worthwhile charity from our communities in Perry County.
