When fire recently ravaged the homes of not just one, but two students on GCMS Team 2, it was hard to imagine the loss of years of personal memories and treasures. But teachers and classmates knew they wanted to help, and secretly began collecting funds so the boys, Steven Davis and Paul Terry, would be able to replace something they had lost in the fires.
In record time they had raised more than $800. Gathering the group on a recent morning, Team leader Rita Mullins praised their empathy and their generosity. “The best lesson that anybody can ever learn is how valuable it is to do something for someone else.” Team 2 teachers are Rita Mullins, Ellen Thomas, Don Logsdon, Glenda Fentress, Mark Gary, and Jessica Bernard.
