Resurrection students raise funds for breast cancer treatment

The Resurrection College Prep High School Student Council organized a fundraiser to raise money in support of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment at Presence Resurrection Medical Center.  Students conducted a “penny war” in which each level collected coins in a good natured competition to collect funds for the cause.   Students collected a total of $583 which was presented on November 14, 2013 to Presence Resurrection Medical Center President and CEO John Baird.

 As the Student Council members expressed in a letter to Mr. Baird, “Many of the students and staff in our school have had moms, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, and friends affected by breast cancer.”  The following Resurrection Student Council officers participated in the presentation of the funds to the medical center: Co-Presidents Melissa Anderson ’14 (60714) and Shannon Clark ’14 (60631), Vice President Rachel Gotsch ’14 (60631), Treasurer Rory Cusack ’14 (60646), Secretary Katelyn Switzer ’15 (60656) and Public Relations Lexie Ippolito ’16 (60707).
