Teachers at West Texas High School got a pie in the face for breast cancer awareness.
In October, the WTHS National Honor Society held fundraisers for breast cancer awareness for its annual service project. They sold pink out t-shirts, bracelets, held bake sales, collected yogurt lids and made a pink pumpkin patch.
Each pumpkin had the name of a faculty member who volunteered to participate (21 total). Any pumpkin that collected $25 earned a teacher a pie. If the entire pumpkin patch raised $400, then every teacher in the patch would be pied. WTHS met that goal by just eight dollars more at $408.
A formal assembly was held last Friday for the student body and guests to witness teachers getting a pie in the face. Also, representatives from Harrington Breast Center and the Amarillo affiliate of Susan G. Komen were presented a check to aid in the fight against breast cancer at this assembly.
â€śWest Texas High School NHS students worked extremely hard and are very proud to have collected over $7,000 for breast cancer education and treatment for women of the panhandle area. The money collected will remain in the Texas Panhandle and directly benefit women in this area,â€ť said Ladawn Moore, West Texas High School NHS sponsor.
