October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All schools in SHISD have been transformed into the “Pink Panthers”, especially on Friday Night’s with pink poms, flags, socks, skirts, and other accessories. But, the varsity volleyball team took the plan a little further. Coach Andrew Harbison teaches his players that responsibility and teamwork are at the core of making a winning legacy. Today, Friday, October 25, he reiterated this message at the Fabulous Friday Celebration held at the primary campus.

“Remember Panthers, “head coach Andrew Harbison said, “When you grow up, you have to look around and see who is in need and it is our duty to help them.”

Harbison and his team raised over $500 dollars by selling “Pink Out” t-shirts during the month of October. Funds raised were donated in a presentation today to one of our own primary campus students and her family to help underwrite some of the financial burdens of battling Breast Cancer.

“Camilla, we will take that check for you and make sure your parents get it,” principal Deanna Turner said.

The varsity cheer squad added to the funds by selling pink out ribbons during the month of October and contributing them to Camilla’s family as well.

“Service and Community are important,” Harbison said. “Thank you and Go Panthers!”
