To kick off Breast Cancer Awareness month, Walker Middle School FBLA sponsored a “pink out” day Sept. 30 for all students.
A Walker teacher, Beth Vandervort, recently was diagnosed with breast cancer so club members wanted to help students show their support for her.
The club made pink tie-dyed T-shirts that said, “FBLA supports Mrs. V,” on the front and, “Real Wildcats wear Pink. Together we can tackle anything,” on the back.
In addition, FBLA members sold pink arm bands all week. Students gave the money from arm-band sales to Vandervort during an assembly in the gym. FBLA President Natalie Pattison and FBLA Vice President Mathew Rowe gave inspirational speeches during the assembly.
Sept. 30 also was Walker Middle School’s homecoming, so FBLA members partnered with the Wildcat football team and cheerleaders to help keep the pink spirit going for the homecoming football game.
