Sixth graders at an upstate school are contributing to help out a beloved teacher, Fox Carolina reported March 8.
Dennae White, a Heritage teacher at Bob Jones Academy, is in need of a brain pacemaker to make her pain go away. Unfortunately, the procedure isn't covered under her insurance policy.
The sixth grade students at Bob Jones Academy got together and came up with a plan to help Dennae.
A fundraiser is set for April 3 from 5-8p.m. at the Pizza Inn on Woodruff Road in Greenville. All tips and donations will go to help cover the cost for White's surgery.
Dennae is a lifelong resident of Greenville who chose to remain in her hometown to give back to her community. Please share her story, and come out on April 3 to support this very worthy cause. It's nice to see students who care so much about this special lady.
Bob Jones Academy began in Lynn Haven, Florida when well-known evangelist Bob Jones Sr., opened Bob Jones Academy, as well as Bob Jones University, where he offered the community a Christian-based education. He moved the two schools to Greenville in 1947. In the 1970's an elementary school was added.
The elementary school and the Bob Jones Academy was unified into one division in 2011, making it the largest Christian school in South Carolina.
