Long Beach Middle School hosted the Joe Farrell Student Faculty Basketball game on March 24. The annual fundraising event was created to remember Farrell, a social studies teacher who passed away in 2007. Additionally, Farrell and his wife Gail were the founders and coaches of the Long Beach Tiger Sharks swim team.
LBMS Assistant Principal Keith Biesma said, “After a two-year hiatus,
we were happy to see the return of this event. It is always a lot of fun to see the students and faculty showcasing their skills on the court! It’s a great afternoon that brings our school community together to remember someone who meant so much to us.”
This year’s event raised $3,276 and is earmarked for scholarships to support eligible Long Beach eighth graders and high school students who are exemplary social studies students, competitive and avid swimmers and show good character.
