Penny Drive a Success

The faculty  and students at the Elizabeth Lee Black School  helped to  aid the future of cancer research  one penny, nickel, and dime at a time.

The Elizabeth Lee Black School held a penny drive this fall to benefit the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation, which is named after former Erie resident John Kanzius. The total amount raised during the four-week drive came to $1,100, an increase of $500 over last year’s proceeds. 

Dr. Maureen Barber-Carey, executive vice president, and students in the Elizabeth Lee Black School delivered and presented the check during the Kanzius Research Foundation telethon held at WICU studios.

In addition to the change collected in the classrooms and throughout the Barber Institute campus, staff also participated in a “dress down” day.
