Giving generously caught on at South Whidbey High School recently.Ben Watanabe / The Record |  Doug Fulton’s marine biology class has lots to celebrate after being the top class to raise money for cancer patients. A weeklong drive yielded almost $600 from the class of 16 students. Taking a break from lab studies from left are: Kelsey Hardaway, Colette Grove, Marissa Dahlman, Breanna Gauger, Kerstin Adams, Bridget Haimes, Elli Madsen, Cody Huffman, Anna Hood, Trey Adams, Lillianna Stelling, Carly Pate, Alex Kubeska and Caitlyn Workman. Absent from class are Aly Chapman and Jenica Bourque.

Students collectively donated $1,309 to Pennies for Patients. The program helps lymphoma and leukemia patients.

The drive had cans in every classroom, and it was on each third period class to donate. Doug Fulton’s marine biology class donated the most out of any individual classroom, accounting for almost half the school’s total. Those students won a pizza party thanks to Coaches Pizza in Freeland.
