Hanan Abubaker wins the “Candy Jar!”

Upon looking at Edsel Ford Charity Week Candy Jar, Hanan Abubaker thought that (2×100) + 50 – 3 = 247, and so that was her guess; it turned out to be the only correct one. She took the candy jar home on Friday, March 25th. We just hope that she didn’t eat it all on the weekend. Stout students raised $45.00 for that charity event. Thanks to all who participated.
