Patty Ewing's third-grade class at Cassville Intermediate School spread a little extra holiday cheer at Christmas when her students created Christmas cards for soldiers stationed in Hawaii. The cards were given to 2010 Cassville High School graduate Seth Myers, who hand-delivered the cards to soldiers in his unit. In return, Myers, and his wife Janay, also a 2010 CHS graduate, sent Hawaiian leis to Ewing's class.
