The Lady Colts would like to show their support and appreciation for Lora Workin, a beloved former Richland #44 teacher who unexpectedly passed away in July. Lora is greatly missed by many in both our school and community. To show their support, the volleyball team is selling a “Workin for a Cause” t-shirt and the team encourages fans to wear the shirt to volleyball games during the Month of October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Lora was a ten-year breast cancer survivor. During October the volleyball team also sports pink jerseys for awareness.
All proceeds from the sale of these shirts will be donated to a community member who was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
Orders can be placed here.
Deadline for orders is Thursday, September 24 at 11am. Shirts will be in on October 1.
There are still a few yearbooks left. If you missed the order last spring contact Kendra to get your copy. $20 each.
