Schools Raise Funds For Children’s Clinic

Teams from Long Beach Unified School District schools and offices were significant benefactors in the recent 15th Annual Beach Walk, a fundraiser in support of The Children’s Clinic, which serves local students. Webster Elementary School fielded the top elementary school team, generating $6,800. The team walked in memory of Dr. Katherine White, a clinic volunteer and board member who died in July. She was the grandmother of Webster teacher Rebecca Qualls. Three separate teams from Millikan High School combined to earn the top amount. The school’s Compass team earned $5,226, the softball team $1,811 and the Associated Student Body team $421 for a total of $7,458. In all, 19 LBUSD teams participated, raising more than $20,000.
