STAFFORD SCHOOLS

Margaret Brent Elementary

Jake Garner has no concept of notoriety and acts only on what moves his heart. His altruistic spirit this past year shone through when he received a $50 bill for Christmas and donated it to the Fredericksburg Food Bank. He wanted to buy food for people who didn't have enough to eat. For his birthday, he asked that in lieu of birthday gifts, people donate money for the children's hospital and to help his mom's cousin with medical bills for his infant son, born with a heart defect. He raised $1,600. At Thanksgiving, Jake drew pictures and held a silent auction. He raised another $200 for the food bank. During his recess, he has offered to tutor kindergartners. This second-grader is doing amazing things for such a young person.
