Adams Central rallies around student cancer patients

When Adams Central seventh-grader Seth Ostrander was diagnosed with brain cancer last fall, everyone at the school rallied around him.

Upperclassmen walked the halls in the bright blue T-shirts with Seth’s initials and the quote “It’s good to be alive” by Christian artist Jason Gray, one of Seth’s favorite musicians.

A year later, cancer is still in the minds and hearts of students and staff at Adams Central and the school’s student council members want to raise even more awareness throughout the school about cancer.

“There are kids in our district who are impacted by cancer and most kids don’t realize that,” said student Samantha Karr. “So we thought it would be a good opportunity to share that with the students and get the students involved.”

That’s why student council members Jady Spady, Elyse Keller and Karr decided to host a cancer awareness week at the school.
