Northwest Guilford High School teacher Ray Parrish was diagnosed with astrocytoma, a brain tumor, in December 2012. He taught at the school for 20 years and is also a NWHS graduate. When students heard about Mr. Parrish's condition, they wanted to do whatever they could to help. There is a donation page, two benefit walk/runs on Saturday and a benefit concert on March 15th to raise money for the beloved teacher. Wednesday, Mr. Parrish returned to his classroom for the first time since December. Mr. Parrish said being away from his students for this long has been more difficult than fighting cancer.
