Surry Community College students, staff and faculty were able to learn about breast cancer prevention and raise money for breast cancer awareness during October. SCC groups raised $350 for the American Cancer Society through the Lee Denim Day and selling luminaries. Other activities raised $110 for Susan G. Komen. Also, the SCC volleyball team held a Dig Pink game in October against Guilford Technical Community College and won in three sets. The Surry Knights players gave away door prizes between sets, sold event T-shirts, and accepted donations to raise money. Players are, front row, from left, Brittany Zeller, Cassie Palmer and Karli Bullins; back row, Coach Jan Marion-Kiser, Cheyenne Kota, Kaitlin Kidd, Morgan Hawks, Jessi Marion, Kacie Markle, Haley Hartman and Assistant Coach Brittany Tolbert.
