The Jimmy Fund: Student Council Sends Kids to School in Haiti
It was not until Columbia High School alumna, Dr. Megan Coffee, introduced the student body to 21-year-old Jimmy that the situation in Haiti became real to CHS. In May 2011, CHS’s student council donated the money Jimmy needed to finish school. “Now I will be an engineer!” said Jimmy. He hopes to become a construction engineer in Haiti and build sustainable houses.
This past spring, Coffee was inducted into the CHS Hall of Fame (HOF) for her volunteer efforts in a tuberculosis ward in Haiti.
