Fourth-grade students, parents and teachers have banded together to help one of their own.
The fourth graders at the elementary school worked with their families to raise $9,120 dollars in two weeks to honor the memory of the daughter of a fourth-grade teacher at Fairmont. Cheryl Conrad’s daughter Hailee passed away in December from medical complications. To memorialize Hailee, who was a sophomore at the University of Kentucky, a scholarship was established in her memory at the university.
After raising nearly $10,000, Fairmont fourth-graders and their families gathered together last Friday morning and presented the check to Cheryl Conrad. The funds will be sent to Lexington, where the scholarship will be established.
