Middle Schoolers Raise More than $20,000 for The Caring Place
Over the course of six afternoons, with 169 students walking a total of 5,712 laps, the Middle School Student Council-hosted walk-a-thon, raising $20,502.85 for The Caring Place, a local organization that provides many services to Cincinnati neighborhoods. At an end-of-year assembly, students and Middle School teachers Jennifer Licata and Theresa Keller presented the check to the executive director of The Caring Place, Sharifah Tafari and board member Grace Spencer. “The Middle School typically supports The Caring Place during a regular school year,” said Licata. “We needed to incorporate COVID-19 safety protocols into our efforts, so the walkathon was a new way to help The Caring Place and have fun in the process! Theresa and I are proud of the students’ support and dedication to raising money for the organization.” We are #StingerProud of the Middle School!
