Saint Xavier students sell ‘Louisville Strong’ T-shirts to raise funds for Barrick Family
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - In the wake of the tragic shooting in downtown Louisville, students at Saint Xavier High School have stepped up to raise money for the family of Joshua Barrick, according to a release.
The school has raised more than $17,500 to support the Barrick family by selling “Louisville Strong” T-shirts in honor of the victims and community.
“Like so many others in the Louisville community, I had the pleasure of knowing Joshua Barrick personally and was shocked and saddened to hear of his untimely passing,” St. X President Paul Colistra said. “Compassion is one of our school’s core values and all of us felt called to do something to support Josh’s family.”
St. X students, teachers, faculty and staff are encouraged to wear their “Louisville Strong” shirts during a schoolwide dress down day on Thursday, April 27.
“We know we can’t take away the tremendous grief and loss that the Barricks are experiencing right now,” St. X Senior Class President Teddy Meiers said. “But we hope our donation will be able to help them as they navigate this difficult time.”
