Are you tough enough to wear pink for breast cancer awareness? The Borger High School cheerleaders are asking the community this very question.
Catherine D. Lawhon, known to her friends as â€śTootie,â€ť was a gift to all who knew her. She grew up in Borger and was a Borger Bulldog through and through. In fact, she and her daughters still belt out, â€śAre you READY? Well I guess. Borger Bulldogs! YES YES YES!â€ť
Catherine was the daughter of Hudson Davis and Ruby Davis and proud to be in this Chevrolet family. She loved being raised in Borger, and the town has always been dear to her heart.
