Mascioli said the fundraiser started in 2000, after math teacher Dan Ketcham died with cancer. The scholarship is named after Ketcham.
“He embodied a very giving attitude,” she said. “I feel like he’s smiling down on us that we keep going.”

For senior Emily Swanson, it was just another activity which shows the spirit of Timberlane students.
“It’s nice to help out and it kind of brings us all together as a society,” she said. “Everyone wears their math T-shirts and it’s just a fun day.”
