Throughout October, Southern Columbia's students and staff were engaged in a variety of activities which raised awareness of the importance of screening and early detection in the fight against breast cancer, as well as activities which raised funds to assist those battlling this disease. Among the activities held during Breast Cancer Awareness Month were a Streak Your Hair Pink event sponsored by the MIddle School Student Council and a Penny Wars competition organized by the High School Student Council which called for the faculty winner kiss a pig! Donut and bake sales, as well as casual dress days for SCA's staff, generated additional funds. All totaled, the fundraisers generated $1,350 with the money donated to the PA Coalition for Breast Cancer
Student representatives Emma Rosko, Ethan Roughton, Bre Burd, Owen Sosnoski, Kristin Kremser, Cassidy Savitski and Reese Hymphrey display the fruits of the month-long fundraising efforts.
