Hopewell Runs for Mrs. Gatton

Posted May 1st, 2017

When one of our own needs help, the Pleasant Valley community jumps into action.  In November, Mrs. Gatton, a fifth grade teacher, at Hopewell Elementary had a seizure at school.  Doctors soon found a brain tumor and Mrs. Gatton started treatment.

Since the news, Hopewell staff and students have been doing what they can to support Mrs. Gatton.  On April 22, they held a 5k in her honor.  About 150 people signed up and together raised about $5,000.  Even though she’s not in the classroom, Mrs. Gatton is teaching her students the lesson of grit, self-sacrifice and community.
