MERIWETHER

Adoptive family: Missoula Schoolchildren

My story: Third graders in Margaret Scott’s class at Lewis and Clark School collected 43,324 pennies - more than any other class - in the Pennies for Ponies campaign. Their pony is named for explorer Meriwether Lewis, who, with his partner William Clark, is the school’s namesake. The class won the right to help design the pony, with the help of Chuck Kaparich and John Thompson.
