- From Mrs. Lefere: A HUGE shut out to senior Tionne Mercer for organizing a collection for UM Motts Save A Heart Campaign in honor of Brooklyn Potter. Our students collected over $400.00 at the collections at our school mass and Tionne took it upon herself to organize a collection at our last home basketball game. She wrote an announcement, read the announcement at the game and then passed buckets to collect money. Her efforts resulted in over $100.00 so we were able to send Motts a check from Lumen Christi for over $500.00. We are very proud of our whole student body with a special shout out to Tionne!
