For the 24th year, Morton Middle School students will have their own March Madness with a 3 on 3 tournament. This year's event will be Friday, March 18.
Thirty-five teams will be participating in four different brackets: 6th grade girls, 6th grade boys, 7th/8th grade girls and 7th/8th grade boys.
The event was the idea of a first year teacher 24 years ago. That teacher? Current Morton Middle School Principal Shannon White. That first year, students helped organize the event. One of those students is still helping out but not as a student council member as a member of the Morton staff, Susan Pulliam, 7th grade math teacher.
Join White, Pulliam and the rest of the Morton students and staff as they celebrate March Madness and raise money for the American Heart Association
