he school year ended on a
high note at Harlan Ele-
mentary in the Birming-
ham School District.
After raising more money than
any other site in the nation in the
Workout for Kids fitness fund-
raiser for the City of Hope Na-
tional Medical Center in Duarte,
Calif., the Harlan students were
rewarded with a visit from
Olympic gold medal-winning
gymnast Bart Cornier.
