Palo Verde High School students are learning anatomy with a life-size skeleton. 

The skeleton belonged to a Tucson radiologist who passed away eight years ago. 

Philip Berman's widow heard that Palo Verde needed a skeleton. She said her husband loved to help people and this would let his legacy live on. 

"This is another opportunity to help children, and hopefully someone in that biology department will, after hearing the story about Phillip today and decide to go to medical school and help others in health and wellness," Judy Berman told KGUN9. 

The anatomy teacher says Palo Verde would never have had the budge for this learning tool.
