Slater High School is proud to announce a successful 2016 Pink Out campaign and donation to Fitzgibbon Hospital Foundation's Pink Out Campaign this year. The 2016 SHS Pink Out Committee presented $2352 to Dr. Darin Haug, CEO of Fitzgibbon Hospital in Marshall, at a student assembly. Dr. Haug accepted the donation on behalf of the Foundation. The monies raised for the last 2 years have been used to purchase a 3D mammography machine.
The purpose of the Pink Out Campaign is to promote awareness for breast cancer and it's prevention as well as to raise money to support those efforts. The SHS Pink Out Committee planned several events to accomplish those goals. They sold the Saline County Pink Out 2016 tshirts, held Pink Out football and softball games, sponsored a Powder Puff game for students in conjunction with a pulled pork dinner, and had a table of information to hand out and items to sell at home games.
The 2016 SHS committee is pictured above. Mickayla Miller and Caitlyn Clements are the chair persons. Committee members are: Kenzie Miller, Aden Campbell, Latrell Johnson, Samaria Kyle-Squires, Emily Williams, Jaylee Hazell, Cassie Eddy, Katie Williams, Rachael Bagnell, Kirby Richards, Emilee Grimes, Carley Grimes, Lauren Reeter, and Rylan Grimes. They are pictured above, along with Slater Superintendent Debbie Gonzalez, presenting the donation to Dr. Haug.
Thank you to all the committee members for their hard work promoting breast cancer awareness and raising funds to help purchase the 3D mammography machine. Thank you to all Slater School District students and families for their support of this campaign.
