EV-W students help Tristan's battle

By Julie Bulau

The EV-W Tri-M Honor Society sponsored a "Treats for Tristan" popcorn sale during the months of Jan-March. On Thursdays, the members would sell popcorn and energy drinks afternoons at school, as a benefit for Tristan Stenger, a seventh-grade student battling cancer. The Tri-M members raised $1,600. and the Western Stearns County Thrivent For Lutherans Chapter gave a matching grant. Presenting the check to Tristan for $3,200 is Tri-M president Morgan Meyer. Tri-M would like to thank organizations that helped us reach our goal: Larry Lampert, Coke Distributer, EV-W Junior High Honor Society, EV-W Student Council, staff and students of all EV-W schools. The EV-W Tri-M Chapter is sponsored by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Paynesville #196.
