MERRITT HONORED BY COACHES VS. CANCER
Last week, the American Cancer Society appeared at Merritt High School to honor the students for their work in the Coaches vs. Cancer fundraising campaign.
Merritt students raised more than $11,000 during the 2012-13 school year, which was the most raised by any school in the state, not only for the year, but in the history of Oklahoma's participation in the event.
“The impact of Coaches vs. Cancer is powered by passionate schools and communities like Merritt,” said American Cancer Society Regional Vice President Lesa Foster. “We are grateful for their partnership in the fight against cancer right here in Oklahoma.”
Merritt received its gold ball for the event last week at a schoolwide pep rally.
“The generous support of Merritt's students, faculty and parents is really what helped make this a successful Coaches vs. Cancer season for us,” said Merritt student council adviser and science teacher Heather Rutherford, who supervised the efforts. “Our community wins this award together — as a team.”
