Oak Grove raises money for good cause

CORBIN — Photo by Jeff Noble

These students at Oak Grove Elementary School raised $3,322.83 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. As a result, they got St. Jude’s T-shirts and got their picture made at the school Friday. Out of the total, Ms. Burns’ 4th grade class raised the most with $861.81, with Mrs. T. Partin’s 2nd grade class runner up with $564. Both classes will earn a popcorn party for their winning efforts. Victoria Johnson in Ms. Burns’ class got the top donations with $501. She was followed by Aaron, Trevor and Trent Jones who turned in $172.65, followed by Chloe McKiddy with $161, Cara Whitus with $135, and Caleb Bennett and Landon Walker, who raised $125 each. The money raised will help St. Jude find cures for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases through research and treatment. And for those who participated in their recent MathaThon, Mrs. Darlene Jones in the Math Lab (pictured, fourth row, far left) gives a big shout-out and thank you.
