As many of you may know, we lost a very amazing person way too soon. Haley Begley was one of the most happy, up-beat, outgoing, and smiley people that you could have ever known. What happened was terribly tragic and it has been extremely hard for many of us to cope with, but the way that our community has come together in order to keep each other strong throughout these terribly hard times amazes me and brings the warmest feeling to my heart.

A lot of people have pitched in on a Go Fund Me charity that was made in order to help Haley’s mother, Carrie Cassidy, with the expenses, but that’s not all. We have decided to also take action here at Lewis Cass. Mrs. Rush came up with the idea to make and sell bracelets with Haley’s name on them and I was lucky enough to sell them. The bracelets are $2 for a beaded one and $3 for a threaded one. They are nothing fancy, but they really don’t need to be. In my opinion, they are super cute and also such a great way to remember such a great person. Bracelet or not, Haley will always be with us, but it is always nice to have a little reminder that she is in fact here.

Now, I’m sure that you are probably wondering where the proceeds are going to and I am beyond excited to be able to announce that the proceeds will be used to set up a memorial for Haley in our school and any extra money that is donated will go to Carrie for anymore possible expenses that she may have. I am beyond excited and utterly amazed with all of what is going on and all of our abilities to stay strong through this and continue to help each other out through this incredibly tough time.

This has all been very hard for all of us and the best way that we could possibly handle it is the way that we are right now: With love and compassion, and the ability to have open arms for anyone who needs them. Also, the ability to know that they have open arms for you as well.
