To the editor:
As most people in the area know, there was a very serious car accident last month that affected the lives of some Indian Creek High School students and their families.
When tragedies like this happen it makes you realize how quickly a life can change and how you can just never be prepared for it. I feel great pride for the high school students from all around the county that have stepped up and given needed support to these families. All school competition disappears and everyone comes together as a single community to give aid, be it collecting money before a basketball game, opening up the school to give a spaghetti dinner or getting bands together to play for a benefit night. This is truly what brotherly love means.
The staff and students at the Jefferson County JVS are also showing their support by giving a soup and sandwich luncheon to raise money for Justin Cummings. It will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Feb. 19. The JVS serves students from all of the schools in Jefferson County and Harrison Central. There is camaraderie among the students at the JVS, where friendships are forged between classmates from competing districts and they look out for each other. The staff and student body want to show their support for the Cummings family. We hope to see you there.
