WTHS teachers get pies in the face for a worthy cause

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. “West 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,” said Ladawn Moore, West Texas High School NHS sponsor.
