The Tortoise and the Hare Race for United Way at Rush

Dr. Kathy Rollo and Executive Principal Melissa Portwood visited Rush Elementary School on Friday to read The Tortoise and the Hare to all classes. After they finished the book, the action moved to the gym for an epic rematch between the tortoise played by Library Assistant Carson Wickersham and third-grade Science teacher Thomas Atchley. Students put change in buckets all week to vote on who they thought would win. All proceeds raised from the event were donated to the campus United Way campaign.
