Students Annamae Hoopes, left, and Maddy Martinec duct tape principal Scott Cleland, left, and fourth-grade teacher Breanna Powell to a wall in the gym at Highland Park Elementary School Friday morning. The stunt was used to raise money to support Gavin Maxwell, a fourth grader at Highland Park, after he traveled with his family to the childrens’ hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, to replace his failing liver. Maxwell was diagnosed with Alpha 1 Antitrypsin deficiency at age 1. Maxwell had a successful liver transplant earlier this month. The Sheridan community and Highland Park students have rallied to raise support for the Maxwell family’s medical and travel expenses through various fundraising efforts.
