Bethlehem Area Vocational School Students Helping Students
Sarrah Ramos, a senior at Northampton Area High School and Bethlehem Area Vocational-Technical School (BAVTS) is battling stage four cancer. While Sarrah was in school she was always happy and an upbeat student in the classroom.
The students and staff at BAVTS wanted to fundraise to do something different for Sarrah. Since it was close to Valentine’s Day, they decided to hold a “Hearts for Sarrah” fundraiser selling hearts in the classroom and at lunch. The students wrote their names, special messages and prayers to Sarrah on the hearts which were delivered to her family for Valentine’s Day. They also did a “Cents for Sarrah” collecting change daily.
The proceeds from a week long bake sale, “Hearts and Cents for Sarrah” as well as faculty donations were presented to her. The amount totaling over $3400.00.
The students wanted to do something special that Sarrah would remember. With the generosity of community support and a portion of the money raised, Sarrah was pampered along with two others at Mirror Mirror Beauty Salon located at 5960 Nor Bath Boulevard in Bath, PA. The salon agreed to do a manicure, pedicure and hairstyle for Sarrah at no charge. A & A Limousine Service located in Northampton, PA graciously donated limo service to and from the salon to make her day even more special. The day ended with a family get together and gift certificate at Sarrah’s favorite restaurant “On The Border.”
