On Monday, February 16, at 5:45 in the evening, the family, friends and co-workers of the late Caryn Hyatt Suthoff met at Chill yogurt emporium for a very special occasion.
Caryn, who died of cancer in December 2014, was a kindergarten teacher at Dodge Elementary School. And in early January 2015, her friend and fellow teacher, Meighan Harton, organized a run in her honor. The Run with a Dot/Caryn's Kids 5K Race at the University of South Alabama also raised funds to help Caryn's husband, Rusty, with medical expenses and to begin a scholarship fund for one of her students when he or she reaches college age.
At the Chill gathering, Harton presented a $500 check to Rusty and displayed another one made out for $2,500 to the Caryn's Kids 2027 scholarship fund.
She also announced that memorial "Caring for Caryn" bracelets are on sale for $3 each. To purchase a bracelet or to make a donation to the scholarship, visit www.carynskids2027.com.
