Rahway Students Send Get Well Cards To Injured Football Player

RAHWAY – As part of their National Week of Writing activities, Rahway Middle School students decided to brighten an injured college football player’s day.

Joseph Sorrentino and Glenn Sanford’s language arts classes teamed up to wish luck and a speedy recovery to recently injured Rutgers University football player Eric LeGrand.  The two teachers helped the students create innovative get well cards for LeGrand, who was injured on a kickoff during the Oct. 16 game against the West Point Black Knights.  The cards will be delivered to LeGrand, who is currently recovering at Hackensack University Medical Center.

Observing the creation of the cards were Principal John Perillo and Vice Principal Kimberly Hall.  Both were touched by the outpouring of support by the students.  The administrators said that this simple act of kindness can go a long way in lifting LeGrand’s spirits and teach the students that the challenges we face everyday can be overcome.
