Students volunteer in memory of child

The Mound-Westonka Class of 2012 concluded their time as high school students by honoring Mighty Max Bulman, the son of MWHS English teacher Corey Bulman for their senior service project.

Just weeks after being born in October 2010, Max was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. The Ronald McDonald House at the Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis provided the Bulmans with all of the comforts of home during their 105-day stay while they helped their son fight for his life. Max lost his fight with the cancer last March.

On the night of their graduation celebration, the class of 168 students came together to make 60 breakfast bags and tie 35 blankets to give to the Ronald McDonald House in honor of Max.

On June 18, a group of seniors brought the breakfast bags and blankets down to the hospital.

"The class of 2012 was there for us all the way through our journey in 2010-2011", Bulman said. "We were humbled by the idea that students would continue to take the time to help other families on a night that was supposed to be about celebrating their own accomplishment."
