Wayne Geary of the American Heart Association praised the students at Morris Area Elementary School at last Friday’s annual Awards Program for fundraising in the Kids Heart Challenge, formerly known as Jump Rope for Heart. He told the assembled the students raised just under $18,000 this year.

Geary singled out two students for raising the most dollars for the cause: Macie Lesmeister and Keagan Zahl. Between the amounts raised by students and an additional donation by Superior Industries, the school’s physical education department received $1400 for equipment.
