Students in an economics class at Bellarmine-Jefferson High School turned from studies of the dollar and the bottom line Monday to a humanitarian effort to help AIDS research. For those who pitched in, it was an "A" effort, said teacher Brian VanDerWilt. "When we got started three weeks ago, we did not know if we were going to pull it off," said Albert Tovar, president of Carnival of Hope, the classroom project that raised about $1,600 for the Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
