Jordan and Allie Norvell of Newton present a check for $2,305.50 to Newton Senior High athletic director Scott Garvis on behalf of their uncle David Norvell, NHS alumnus. David Norvell, who lives in Florida, used his opportunity to play in the Central College alumni football game, after overcoming cancer not once but twice, in Pella this fall to raise funds for the NHS athletics. Jordan Norvell is a player on the Newton freshman football team this season.
