Four second-grade classes at East Brainerd Elementary School sold candygrams to raise funds for a donation to the American Legion's Troop Support Team.
Students raised $400 in the project spearheaded by teacher Diane Kemp. Students made the donation through American Legion Post 95 because one of their teachers, Millie Batts, is a member of Post 95. Ms. Batts is an Army veteran who served in Operation Desert Storm in 1991. From left, are Bill Horton, American Legion Troop Support Team; teachers Kemp and Angela Askins; Cmdr. Bill Norton, American Legion Post 95; Carol Horton, Troop Support Team; and Ms. Batts.
