The Altoona School District is showing its support for a middle school teacher recently diagnosed with leukemia.

Students at Altoona Intermediate School wore orange Thursday to raise awareness about the disease and to support sixth-grade teacher Shannon Camlek who is currently undergoing cancer treatment in Rochester. School officials say the idea to wear orange originated with a student.
