Centralia High School Raises $1,600 for Student Fighting Lymphoma

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

A fund raiser to benefit Centralia High School senior Bryan Miller who learned over the Christmas break he has lymphoma soared well over its goal this weekend.  Centralia High Auto Mechanics Instructor Rob Mensen says $1,600 was raised through the 'for a donation' car wash held in the school's auto shop.  

The senior auto mechanic students initially had set a goal of $1,000.  However, Mensen says community support was very good, with 60 to 70 vehicles brought out to be washed.  It took the students 11 hours to complete work on all the cars.  Several had to get permission not to go into work so they could complete the car washes and details.  

Miller is currently undergoing chemotherapy.   Centralia High School is also planning a dinner fund raiser to assist Miller's family with medical expenses and transportation costs for treatment.
