MARTIN COUNTY - Over $14,000 was raised this past week to help a Grady High School student who is struggling in a battle with leukemia.

Betty Weibe, a junior at Grady, was diagnosed with ALL leukemia and has begun treatments.

Fellow students at Grady and many from Stanton worked with the Grady Student Council, Grady FFA and Grady Junior Class to put on a benefit for their classmate.

“We would like to thank everyone who helped in making the garage sale and hamburger meal benefiting Betty a success. We were amazed at how our community came together and supported Betty and her family during their time of need,” said Regenia Hunt, one of the organizers.
