EAST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– In a horrible time the students at Ferrera Elementry school in East Haven started doing a nice thing.
Every year since the passing of faculty member Rusty Zoarksi, the school and its students have held a walk-a-thon to raise money for a scholarship fund in Zoarski’s name.
Monday afternoon the kids were back out there pounding the pavement alongside the Zoarski family.
The kids raised over 15 hundred dollars to go to a college bound East High school athlete who attended Ferrera Elementary.
Zoarksi loved sports and was a baseball coach for many area kids who are now playing college baseball.
