The 11 students gathered around the flag poles at Lebanon Memorial Park and released balloons in memory of Allen.

A group of Lebanon Middle School students took time Monday from their fall break to honor former LMS Principal Brad Allen, who died Sunday after a seven-month illness.  “He was a great man,” said Amber Northrop, mother of eighth-grader Gabrielle Northrop. Seventh-grader Arnela Cajlak organized the gathering. “He was one of my favorite principals,” she said. “I was going to do this by myself, but I figured a lot of others liked him, too.” Joining Northrop and Cajlak in releasing balloons were seventh-graders Megan Lashley, Chelsie Howe, Cameron Cole and Antonette Miller, and eighth-graders Kirsten Hale, Sydney Hess, Kaitlyn Beach, Katelyn Freed and Corrine Strohl.
