In the wake of a tragedy, Northern Lehigh School District has set out to take care of one of its own.
Sherri Molitoris, co-director of business affairs/human resources, told the school board on Monday that donations are being collected for the Krum family, which last week lost their son, Gavin Lee Krum.
Gavin, 14, of Lehighton, was the son of David and Lora Krum. Lora is a vocal instructor at Peters Elementary.
An eighth grade student at Lehighton Area Middle School, Gavin lost his battle of fighting complications brought about from his recently diagnosed leukemia.
