Teachers gather to show support for HarrisonBy Matt Cole Published 4:34pm Friday, August 23, 2013
Three teachers from Westside Elementary designed T-shirts to help raise money for Amanda Harrison, who has battled encephalitis over the summer.
Amanda Meadows, Emily Windham and Teila Lee designed the shirts to be lime green and pink, Harrison’s favorite colors, with peace signs on them.
“She likes peace signs,” Meadows said. “She decorated her classroom with them.”
On Friday, teachers from the Demopolis City Schools system, as well as friends of Harrison, gathered to show their support for her by wearing the shirts.
So far, sales of the shirts have raised $2,600 for Harrison. There are still a few shirts available, and they can be purchased by contacting Meadows, Windham or Lee.
