400 Students Skip Class To Sing To Teacher Battling Cancer

This was about three years ago (September 2016)… just came across it today via Twitter (below article). It is also on RUMBLE.

More than 400 students and faculty from a Tennessee school skipped class last week to put on a special concert in support of a beloved teacher battling an aggressive form of cancer. Video of Christ Presbyterian Academy teacher Ben Ellis watching the students outside of his home window quickly went viral after being shared by country superstar Tim McGraw.

The moving tribute was organized after word had reached students that the 50-year-old Ellis had decided to stop treatment, KTVU reported. Classes at the college-preparatory school were canceled and buses were ordered to shuttle students to his home. Ellis, a father of five, can be seen in the video watching and singing along with the students….
