School Builds Playground In Memory Of Student

Tools

Carthage Middle School is putting the finishing touches on a new playground to make sure one of its students is never forgotten. 

The school is building the playground in honor of Kendall Chevez, a CMS 5th grader who died from lukemia three years ago.

To get this done, 5th grade teacher Jennifer Scholette raised $45,000 with the help of students, faculty and Kendall's parents.

They are calling it Kendall's Place: A CMS Tribute to Our Fallen Stars.

The playground, which is not quite finished, is expected to be completed in the next few weeks.

The school will have a ribbon cutting ceremony around Kendall's birthday, which is in the end of October.
