Our Bluejay family is going to come together to raise money for a Montrose Alum, Tammy (Sargent) Heiserman. Tammy and Jeremiah's son, Emmett, was involved in a motor vehicle accident in February, and the 4 year old is still in the hospital.

We will be having a fundraiser all week long March 11-15, 2019. See image below.

This is a benefit for a local family. Let's show the Heiserman family that the motto "Once a Bluejay, Always a Bluejay" is something that applies to alum, as well as present teachers/students.
