Clarksville, TN – We all know how teachers and staff are constantly helping our students every day.

The students at the Academy for Academic Excellence, however, are turning the tables on a staff member.

These elementary students have created six paintings, like those shown below, to sell.

The proceeds go to help a staff member who has been diagnosed with cancer and the students want to help the family pay for transportation costs to the doctor, radiation and chemo visits, and other expenses.

Clarksville Elementary School Students have created these paintings to raise money for a staff member's medical expenses.

“These amazing elementary school children have dedicated their time and talent with the hopes of being able to help this staff member with their medical costs,” said Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville). “The people of Clarksville always come together to help in times of great need and I trust you will respond to this opportunity,” Pitts said.
