CEN­TRE­VILLE — A fundraiser is planned Fri­day, June 2, for the fam­ily of a Ken­nard Ele­men­tary School stu­dent who lost his bat­tle with cancer last week.

Eiann Con­nell, 10, had been cancer-free for four years be­fore the leukemia came back. He was af­fec­tion­ately re­ferred to as “Su­per­man” for his strength and courage in his fight with cancer.

His teacher Brit­tney Borza, along with other staff mem­bers, has or­ches­trated a silent auction that will take place dur­ing the in­au­gu­ral Cen­tre­ville and Ken­nard Ele­men­tary Fam­ily Pic­nic, spon­sored by the PTA. Staff mem­bers have made gift bas­kets and lo­cal busi­ness and com­mu­nity mem­bers have made gen­er­ous donations.

They will also sell T-shirts. All pro­ceeds will go to the Con­nell fam­ily to help with ex­penses.
