Pennies for Patients
Loyalton Middle School students participated in the Pennies For
Patients program for the 11th year during February. The program,
sponsored by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, raises money for
research and treatment of blood cancer patients. Students set a goal of
$1000 for this year. Students managed to exceed their goal, raising a
total of $1255.
Teacher Mark Fisher's Leadership class can claim a large part of
the success. Carefully planning by students Bret Colberg, Bryant Doyle
and Samantha Hall gave students the motivation and encouragement they
For meeting the goal, the school's three teachers agreed to dye
their hair. Pictured above are Susan Baker (teal), Camille Alfred
(magenta) and Mark Fisher (green). Student leaders also rose to the
occasion. The team that earned the most money enjoyed a chance to throw
apple and cherry pies at the Olympic team captains.
