Nov. 22—MARION — Fifth-grader Bella Saul was celebrated by her Boulder Peak Intermediate School peers Monday after graduating from cancer treatment.

Bella, 10, walked the hallway of Boulder Peak Intermediate lined with 300 fifth-graders cheering her on after a monthslong battle with osteosarcoma, a kind of bone cancer that likely developed from radiation treatment from a previous form of cancer that Bella fought. Many educators in the school wore pink T-shirts that read "Bella Strong." Her peers held signs that read "You amaze us," "You're a warrior" and "We're proud of you."
