Wyatt spent a week at Nationwide Children’s Hospital following his stroke and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments there. He is the son of Benjamin Logan graduates Meriah and Seth Wenger of North Lewisburg, formerly of Bellefontaine.
Early childhood education and culinary students at the school lead a month-long fundraising effort after learning about Wyatt’s story from Early Childhood Education Instructor Angie Walls.
Nationwide Children's Hospital is now seeking a partnership with Ohio Hi-Point for continued fundraising efforts.
