At Clark Lane Middle School Friday night, it was trivia for a cause.
The school held its annual trivia night Friday, where Team The Smart Lizards was crowned champions. However, the real winners were the two charities the event benefited, Little Hearts Inc and Saving Little Hearts.
The school picked those two charities, which both benefit children with congenital heart defects, because Clark Lane Middle School teacher Lisa Mellon has a child with a congenital heart defect. Mellon's daughter, Marisa, underwent open-heart surgery when she was three-months-old and when she was five-months-old, but she is now a healthy, active girl.
Calvin Thibeau, Benjamin Yao, Lilly Partridge, Destiny Hsieh, Sophie Joseph and Catherine Yao were the students on Team The Smart Lizards. Clark Lane Middle School teacher Nicole Kennedy and Kevin Larrow created the trivia questions, with Clark Lane Middle School Principal Jim Sachs serving as the event's host.
