Stambaugh Elementary School students participated in a special community service program called “Wykon Kids for a Cause,” a partnership between the school and NorthStar Health System. Youngsters raised money to donate to the hospital to purchase vouchers for calcium scoring screenings for community members. This year, the students raised $1,696 and also learned to exercise safely themselves, with regular programs at school and home. Three children won the grand prizes, scooters, helmets and knee and elbow protectors, for raising the most money. Pictured, from left, are Jim Kralovec, Stambaugh Elementary physical education teacher; Denise Maloney, West Iron County Schools health and wellness coordinator; Jensen Guth, first grade student and prize winner; Jocelyn Guth, third grade student and prize winner; Danica Shamion, kindergarten student and grand prize winner; Carol Brunswick, Stambaugh Elementary principal; Chris Thomson, WIC superintendent; Peg James, director of the NorthStar Foundation; and Bruce Rampage, NorthStar Health System CEO.
