St. Jude School students recently participated in the Math-A-Thon, an educationally based fundraising program in which students obtain sponsors for the number of math problems completed in special workbooks. Through sponsors, the students are able to assist in providing funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. The students collected $1,987, which brings the total raised over the years by St. Jude School students to more than $67,000. Tim Gallagher had the highest sponsorship amount with $395. There was a tie for second highest between Patrick Curley and Delaney Curley, who raised $250 each. Several students chose to donate the prizes they had earned back to St. Jude's Hospital. Highest collectors, from left, first row, are Thomas Mayernik, Connor Spencer, Molly Jameson, Ashleigh Button, Emerson Zito, Delaney Curley and Tea Amerise. Second row: Patrick Curley, Derek Petrochko, Tim Gallagher, Julianna Powis, Gabrielle Tammarine and Jimmy Lavan. McKaylia Ward was also a high collector.
