The second-graders in Gage Bingham’s class have an extra special reason to use hand sanitizer these days.

Gage, 8, of North Powder, had a heart transplant on April 5 at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California.

He was discharged Saturday, April 22, and went back to his public school class in California this week.

His mom, Stacy Bingham, said she expected him to start back a little bit at a time, but he wanted to stay the entire day right away.
