Healthy Heart Fundraiser

Donations are being accepted to light the heart on the front of the Caruthersville Public Schools Administration building for the purpose of funding the Healthy Heart Scholarship.  This scholarship fund was started in 1996 by middle school principal J. J. Bullington, in memory of her mother, Bernice Bullington, who died of heart disease in 1994.  Since that time over $25,000 has been awarded in scholarships to a graduate entering a health related occupation.  The scholarship is made possible by citizens of Caruthersville through donations made in memory of or to honor friends and loved ones, and through Healthy Heart Month fund raisers. 

Lights are being sold for a $5.00 donation.  Names of those memorialized will be sent to the local radio station and newspaper.  To make a donation, send a check to Caruthersville Public Schools, Healthy Heart Fund, 1711 Ward Ave., or stop by the Caruthersville Public Schools Administration Building.
