We did it!

What is it that we did? We raised $16,000 for the Huntsman Cancer Institute, beating last years total of $9,000!

Business Week 2011 was a great week, and the Huntsman School enjoyed being in the spotlight. The crowning moment was when Scot Marsden, our student senator, presented Jon Huntsman with a giant check for $16,000. Mr. Huntsman and Mrs. Huntsman were both deeply touched, and Mrs. Huntsman even went to the microphone and made an impromptu speech thanking the school for its support. We have witnessed the great work Mr. Huntsman has done to make the world a better place, and we would be selfish not to find ways to raise money for one of his favorite causes.

Just before the check was handed over to Mr. Huntsman, a video was shown depicting students in the Huntsman School who have benefitted from the Huntsman Cancer Institute. The video, made by Huntsman students Sterling Morris and Brent Meacham, was top quality and deserves to be seen by anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

Thanks to everyone who made Business Week a success, and here's to hoping we beat $16,000 in 2012!
