News from Col. Wm. Casey School

The students at Col. Wm. Casey Elementary School, 220 Gen. John Adair Drive, Columbia, KY 42728, kicked off their Pennies for Patients campaign today, Tuesday, January 15, 2013. This effort raises money to fight leukemia, a cancer that attacks blood cells.


Students at the school are asked to save their change and bring it to school between now and January 28 to help reach the school goal of $500.

The inspiration for this event is all children who suffer from leukemia, but especially, Blake Bardin, a CWC first-grader in Mrs. Darlene Campbell's class, who is a survivor of leukemia. Blane and his mother, Kasey Bardin, were joined by Shelia Gustafson from the Leukemia Society (Charity Navigator rating - CM) Tuesday at Casey to kick off the Pennies for Patients campaign.

Mrs. Bardin shared Blake's story with our school family. Students and faculty members participated in activities and skits to encourage everyone to do their best during the event.

Anyone wishing to help support Col. Wm. Casey's campaign may do so by simply dropping a donation by the school, 220 Gen. John Adair Drive, Columbia, KY, or giving it to any CWC student involved. We appreciate the support of our community in this worthwhile activity for our students. - Patty Jones, Principal
