Everett’s recovery is more extensive than that of Charlie’s and is marked with great accomplishments and difficult set-backs. When the 8th Grade Class at St. Mary’s was considering recipients for their Halloween carnival fundraiser, they naturally turned to an experience that was close at heart for many of the students. Without hesitation they donated their proceeds, $1200, to Everett’s recovery needs. Everett was able to visit St. Mary’s in person, where the check was presented to him.
