School groups work together to raise breast cancer awareness and help find a cure.

Nettleton High Sschool EAST, BETA, Student Council and NHS Volleyball Team worked together for Breast Cancer Awareness Month iast October. To organize the awareness campaign, students Jill, Delaney, Jennifer, Kaylee and Mandi met with Mrs. Deana Weeks, a representative for the Nettleton Volleyball Booster Organization. Students planned activities including a kick-off for the faculty, discussed the silent art auction, ribbon sales, awareness posters, and bulletin boards.

During the month-long event the following activities were carried out:

· Two T-shirts were designed by Mandi, NHS volleyball player for “Dig for the Cure” and Rachel, Jill, and Delaney for “Raiders Go Pink” using Photoshop.

· During the kick-off faculty, staff, and administrators were photographed by EAST student Rachel, who used Adobe Photoshop to create a Raiders Think Pink awareness poster.

· BETA Club members donated items for the ”Pink Bucket for the Cure” to be given away.

· Jodie sold pink ribbons, and proceeds were given to the Susan G. Komen organization.

· EAST and Student Council invited Marti Whitehead, a nurse from St. Bernard’s Imaging Center, to speak to the senior girls about breast cancer awareness.

· Nettleton EAST students created posters that were displayed in the hallways.

· Proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

“We have banded together,” said senior Mandi, a volleyball team member. “There is a lot going on, and it’s all about raising awareness.” EAST student Delaney stated, “It’s about raising awareness, because everyone knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer.” Through the combined efforts a total of $4, 143.00 was raised for the Susan G. Komen organization.
