Community member Sarah Henderson and yearbook editor-in-chief discuss plans for a memorial bake sale in honor of senior Hannah Glair who died in a car accident earlier in the school year. "That particular morning before I walked into the school, I prayed to God asking to show me where I could best be used," Henderson said. "I signed in and proceeded to the lunchroom. Within seconds, my cellphone rang and it was Julie Glair, Hannah's mother. Ms.Cyr had asked Julie if she wanted to be involved in a bake sale to raise money for some yearbook memorial pages for Hannah. She explained that she had been to the high school library days earlier and the experience was emotionally difficult for her. She asked if I could help the yearbook staff organize the bake sale. There was what God wanted me to do!"

Yearbook students brought it upon themselves to fundraise for a memorial ad page for Hannah Glair, who passed away in the winter of 2018. The results were tremendous, raising $400 and some odd cents, surprising many yearbook members.

Sophomore Jon Clark, the staff business manager, worked with the assistant editor, junior Cassandra Chapman and yearbook adviser Elizabeth Cyr to come up with a fundraising idea to pay for a memorial block in the yearbook in memory of Hannah.

“All we wanted was a small block, which is about $65 to $100,” Chapman said. “But then, we started gaining more money…. So, we have enough and some.”

Clark thinks Sarah Henderson, a family friend of the Glairs, had a huge part to play for this fundraiser happening.

“She helped me plan it,” Clark said. “To be honest, it probably wouldn’t of happened if she wouldn’t of helped me out, because I had no idea what was going on. I’ve never had to organize something like that.”

Clark feels that Cyr also played a big part in helping him complete the task.

“She brought in food. She kept me motivated.’ Clark said.
