In mid-August Southport Middle School student, Alec Volz, was struck by a car while riding his bicycle. Alec has been in Riley Hospital for the past month from injuries sustained during this accident. One of Alec’s friends, Justin Tracy, wanted to help. Justin took the initiative to order hundreds of ALECSTRONG bracelets to sell and donate the proceeds to Alec’s family. Justin has sold the bracelets to friends, family, students and staff over the past month. His efforts have raised over $700 to help Alec in his recovery. Justin is a true role model for other students at SMS, showing that kindness is his strength. Our thoughts continue to be with the Volz family during Alec’s recovery process.
