September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and on September 11 (National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day) the students and staff of Sylva-Bay Academy purchased gold balloons in honor of Hawk Hendry and in memory of Seth Harris. The balloons were tied outside and flown all day and then at the end of the day they were deflated and mailed to local congressman and representatives to bring their attention to the need for a cure. Sylva-Bay Academy has been touched deeply by cancer, both Hendry and Harris, are members of the seventh grade class. Hendry continues to be cancer free, but, unfortunately, the SBA family lost Harris on May 30, 2009. He was and is deeply loved by all at Sylva-Bay and will always be remembered as a hero. SBA thanks everyone for their support. Hendry is pictured with the Sylva-Bay cheerleaders and the gold balloons.
