Koloa School students show their heart

KOLOA — Sparked by the efforts of Koloa School kindergartner Dodger Middlebrook, 180 students from the school made a big difference for the American Heart Association.

Coinciding with the school’s monthly Student-of-the-Month assembly, Dave Walker of the American Heart Association was a special guest for the school assembly themed after a mini circus.

Walker accepted a check for $3,353, representing the total amount of funds generated by the recent Jump Rope for Heart event which was coordinated through the school’s physical education program.

Middlebrook, as the top fund-raiser, was able to raise $333 for the event.

“This is outstanding,” said Walker.
