YPSILANTI — They say all's fair in love and war. That statement was particularly true this week for students at South Pointe Scholars Academy, who engaged in the Karing for Kendall Penny War to raise money to help a disabled classmate.
The Penny War fundraiser was started to help reimburse members of the South Pointe Parent Organization, who all chipped in to buy a special semi-automated transfer lift for Kendall Jolly, a wheelchair-bound seventh grader with cerebral palsy.
"Basically Kendall is in need of a lot of care," said South Pointe Principal Nancy Kouba. With limited mobility, Kendall needs extra help taking care of her basic needs at school when it comes to getting in and out of her wheelchair.
