For the third consecutive year, Conard High School’s traditional red was traded for pink to support breast cancer awareness during the West Hartford school’s annual “Pink Out” day on Friday, Oct. 25.
To show support, the DECA Club designed and sold t-shirts to faculty, students, and parents in an effort to raise awareness.
“Breast Cancer has touched the lives of our unit, our family, and the DECA students take pride in seeing their efforts pay dividends by paying it forward,” said club advisor Holly Ruiz.
Senior Johnny Hoang commented, “Today the school spirit was out of this world. Most students wore pink to support the cause. Our school came together as a community, which is something I love to see.”
The united front of Conard High School could even be seen in the student section of Friday night’s football game.
