Hubbard students raise funds for teacher battling stage 4 cancer


Hubbard Elementary School students pulled out all the stops to make their Pennies for Patients fundraiser in April successful.

They were extra motivated because this year’s fundraiser benefits middle-school teacher Jill Hoover, who was diagnosed with stage four cancer two years ago.

“I am beyond blessed to be a part of this community,” Hoover said. “Parents, teachers, students and staff have gone above and beyond to show my family and I love and support.”

The students raised $6,223 throughout the month, with a total of 1,435 pounds of coins.

Robyn Fette’s fourth-grade class raised the most money and won a Chuck E. Cheese party.
