MID-STATE 3-A CONFERENCE MAKES DONATIONS TO FIGHT CANCER
EDEN-- There are numerous ways that high schools and their athletic teams are involved in community service, and here is an example of a whole conference doing something special.
The Mid-State 3-A Conference, for the last two years, has voted to add a one-dollar surcharge to the admission of the conference basketball tournament in February. One-half of the proceeds from the surcharge go to the Jimmy V Foundation and one-half to the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund.
The conference sent $834 to the V Foundation and $834 to the Kay Yow Fund after this year's men's and women's tournaments.
With this donation, the Mid State 3A Athletic Conference has now given $3,504 in memory of Kay Yow and Jim Valvano since the 2009-10 school year.
Writing to the organizations, Jim Wilson, commissioner of the conference, said, "We hope that this small gift will one day bring big results in your efforts to find a cure for cancer."
Members of the conference include Eastern Alamance, Eastern Guilford, McMichael, Morehead, Northern Guilford, Rockingham County, Western Alamance and Walter Williams.
Well done, Mid-State 3-A Conference!
