In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Harborfields High School’s 10th grade Student Government members donated $1,500 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The team collectively designed and sold children’s and adult-sized t-shirts, long-sleeved shirts and sweatshirts across the district’s schools, raising breast cancer awareness and a sense of community.
“I think it’s something that is really impactful especially because there is so little we can do in this time and it’s so strange that we can’t be together and gather,” Student Government President Nahrahel Louis said. “We thought that this would be a great way to bring the community spirit back by collectively coming together and supporting this one thing. It has truly been a team effort.”
Members of the Student Government also planned and executed districtwide “Pink Day[s]” on Nov. 12-13. Students, faculty and staff wore their new apparel in solidarity.
