Cameron Stackman’s father, Bill, went to school here about 5 years ago. His son, Cameron, was born needing a liver and small intestine transplant. There have been many expenses over and above what insurance will cover and quite a few events in the area to help raise money for him. If you go to the News 9 site below and enter “Cameron Stackman” in the search area, you’ll find quite a few articles about him.
We had an article in our school/community newsletter for the month of May as follows: “The Binky Patrol has Arrived at Stillwater High School Graduating seniors may elect to take a course entitled, ‘Senior Seminar.’
The course is divided into four teaching units, one of which is a community service unit. Ms. Sue Salmon and her class are currently participating in a project entitled, ‘The Binky Patrol.’ The Binky Patrol makes blankets and gives them away to comfort children and teens in need.
Mrs. Maureen Mehan, who works as a computer specialist in the Middle/High School,is an accomplished knitter and crocheter. She has volunteered her time to teach the students how to knit or crochet a blanket to donate. There are twenty-four senior students working on blankets that will be donated to needy children in our area at the end of the school year.
This class is also planning several events to help aid a local family. Bill Stackman, who graduated from Stillwater several years ago, has a son who needed a liver transplant. The studnets are kicking off a donation campaign in the school to help this family. In addition, the students will hold a “Knit-a-Thon” on May 14th to benefit both the Stackman family and the Binky Patrol. This event will take place from 3:00-9:00 p.m., and the students will raise money from pledges they receive prior to the Knit-a-Thon. We are proud of our students and their efforts!”
