Amidst the hustle and bustle of Back to School night, the SGA Breast Cancer Awareness shirt table stood out like an island of neon pink.

On August 28, students and parents gathered to prepare for the upcoming school year. Students were given the opportunity to walk around their classes and meet their teachers. Many bought spirit wear from the Sports Boosters, and Chromebooks were distributed in the Learning Commons.

Every year, the Student Government Association (SGA) makes it a goal to raise a certain amount of money for different causes each term. For the first term, the focus is on raising money for breast cancer awareness.

The SGA sold neon pink shirts to raise money for the American Cancer Society. By selling pink-out shirts, they hope to increase fundraising and participation in the first service project of the year.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and in support, many of the athletic teams host “pink-out” games where spectators and athletes all dress in pink.

“I think that the shirts raising money for the American Cancer Society is a great idea. It shows school spirit and helps our community. The shirts are fun and they’re for a good cause,” said senior Hanna Johnson.

The shirts are limited edition and will be sold again starting in the beginning of October during lunch shifts. Each shirt is a $15 dollar donation to the American Cancer Society. If you are interested in purchasing a shirt, look out for the neon pink table at lunch, coming soon!
