The school community showered two former students, Ridge Thorbahn and Sami Curtis, with endless support through their battle with the cancer up until their last days.
Ridge battled cancer for two years before passing away at the age of 21 in 2011.
“Ridge was a great person. He had a wonderful personality and contagious smile. He always put others before himself,” said Paula Jones, a fifth grade teacher at the school and member of the Canton Central Teacher's Association. “He had tremendous courage and strength.”
