Karen Vue is a junior at Central High School in Sheboygan, and she received a gift from her classmates. Vue has been missing school due to a cancerous brain tumor, so her classmates decided to raise her money. For two weeks, the school waged a Penny War, a fundraiser that pitted the classes against each other to raise the most money. The students raise $1,000 for Vue, who is undergoing chemotherapy at Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee. While she is unable to physically attend school, Vue continues to work toward her graduation, with help from teachers and staff at Central High School.
