Byers Elementary participates in drive
The students of kindergarten through sixth grade at H.W. Byers Elementary School in Marshall County participated in a program called “Pennies for Patients.” The monies donated from the students were collected and given to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help people with leukemia and other blood cancers.
H.W. Byers Elementary principal Dixie Pye supported the program and encouraged her students to work diligently with this fund raising project. Under the leadership of Sabrina Porter, the children raised a grand total of $1,900. The first place winner went to Mollie Dunigan and her fifth grade students. Her class raised the most money and will receive the reward of a pizza party for all of their hard work. \The second place winner goes to Dorothy Harris and her sixth grade students. Special thanks go out to Dorothy Harris, Carolyn Curtis, Doris J. Dunigan and Riddle Construction Company for their generous contributions as well.
