Tonight, our varsity basketball team is hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness Night, as well as Teacher Appreciation night vs. Fontbonne Academy in the NDA gym at 6:30pm.
We will be having a bake sale during the event tonight to raise money for breast cancer research. Before the beginning of the game, we will be hosting a ceremony to recognize some of our teachers here at NDA.
Varsity Basketball members have invited their favorite teacher at NDA to the event and will be giving each teacher a carnation during the ceremony.
On February 19th and 20th, we will be hosting the 5th JBA Classic in honor of Jessica Bradbury Adams, an NDA alumnae and basketball coach who created a lasting impact on the NDA community. Jess lost her battle to breast cancer in December of 2017 at the age of 38. This tournament is a way to continue with her legacy here at NDA and all proceeds from this event go to our Jessica Bradbury Adams Scholarship fund that we have here.
