ETHAN SMITH – 8th grade student at LMS
Ethan is an amazing young man. He has spent countless hours dedicated to increasing awareness and raising money to help those afflicted with Parkinson’s disease. Recently, he organized a “Spirit Link” fundraiser at LMS in which he inspired his classmates and teachers to raise over $500 to donate to the cause. Not only did he help raise money, but he also interviewed a physician and created a public service video that we were able to air to our students so that they would have a better understanding of this disease and the effects it has on those it afflicts.
