West Hills Raises Money for Breast Cancer Awareness back button

The students at West Hills Elementary School have "pinked" it out in their second annual Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. During the month of October, students were allowed to wear pink shirts for $1.00 on select Fridays. 

The cancer awareness drive was spearheaded by students and teachers in kindergarten, but the whole school joined in to make the campaign a great success. The students of West Hills raised an impressive $260.00 through their pink out days and cupcake sale. 

Ms. Ethridge and Ms. Davis's fourth grade classes also ordered pink cupcakes for $1.00 each.   

The money raised was donated to Wayne Herrington of Anderson Cancer Center in honor of Dessie Larkin, a foster grandmother of West Hills, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.

Great job, West Hills!
