JACKSONVILLE —

East Side teachers Emily McKnight and Mandy Johnston spearheaded the Mad Hatter Drive as part of a Hats Off for Cancer project at the PK-4 program.

Students from their 3rd and 4th grade Applied Learning Community classes collected 133 ball caps, berets and various other kinds of hats to donate to anational organization benefitting children with cancer.

The ACL students wrote PSAs about childhood cancers that also dispelled myths about the disease, they said.

Searcy said they researched the project and coordinated it from start to finish, along with taking charge of a Pink Out T-shirt sale held earlier in the month at the school to raise breast cancer awareness.

“They took it and just ran with it,” Searcy said.
