David Crockett and Sugar Land Middle Schools raised $1,040.47 in the Volley Pink Project Volleyball Game October 4 at Crockett.  It is the third year the two schools have teamed with the Fort Bend Junior Service  League to help local cancer patients with the costs associated with their treatment. Each school contributed just over $500 to the cause.

“The project has been just a phenomenal event each year and it teaches the volleyball players at both schools a valuable about helping and serving others,” Joshua McLain, DCMS teacher and co-organizer of the project, said. “Our two school communities prove every year that they value volunteerism and that is very important.”

The itinerary for the event this year included a performance by the Crockett Orchestra, directed by Neal Springer, who played the National Anthem, a moment of silence for the victims and survivors of breast cancer and the check presentation to the FBJSL.

“Sugar Land Middle School volleyball was so excited to meet with Crockett for another year of Volley Pink,” Debbie Cooper, Sugar Land co-coordinator and coach, said. “ Everyone pulled together to help make a record collection and event for breast cancer awareness a success.”
