Cardinal Middle School Principal, Dr. Jennifer Sabol, is more than just a leader and role model, she’s an inspiration. Her journey has encouraged all of us who are a part of the Cardinal School District, and even those who are outside our buildings, district, and village, to appreciate this gift called life.
As many of you know, Dr. Sabol has been battling cancer and she’s putting up one heck of a fight. (If you ask us, cancer doesn’t stand a chance.) Since her diagnosis, our students and staff have organized several events to raise money and show support for the Sabol family. In the halls of CMS, the windows are lined with messages of hope and love for Dr. Sabol to read when she’s there.
There have been fundraisers and raffles, t-shirt sales, a snowman and even a “green out” at a recent middle school basketball game to show support. The CMS girls’ basketball team faced rival Berkshire, Dr. Sabol’s previous employer. Some of the students and staff from Berkshire showed their support through raffle donations and sporting green “Team Sabol” shirts.
Dr. Sabol is half way through her treatments. Her hope is to be in school for a few days each week and we certainly enjoy seeing her when she’s there. Her journey is far from over, but Dr. Sabol says she would have never made it this far without all of you, and sends this heartfelt message.
“The Sabol Family extends a huge THANK YOU to the Cardinal Schools and neighboring communities for their ongoing and dedicated support! We are so thankful to be a part of the Cardinal District and appreciate your efforts, time, donations, cards, e-mails and many other contributions or words of encouragement! The Green Game will be remembered forever in our hearts! We have said from the beginning that expressing how appreciative we are is very difficult to put into words. We are not quite sure what to say that will truly express the amount of support and strength we have felt. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, we love you all!”
