Boswell Media's "Cruisin for a Cure" truck made a stop at the Attala Center in Kosciusko last week promoting Breast Cancer Awareness in Attala and surrounding counties.

Students and staff from the Attala Center raised $525 for the American Cancer Society and were able to sign the pink 2018 Chevrolet crew cab truck provided by Franks Chevrolet and wrapped by Holt's Body Shop, both in Kosciusko. The students in practical nursing, business and office technology, Ingalls, workforce and MiBest participated in the event, along with faculty/staff from the Attala Center and from the Goodman and Ridgeland campuses.

Holmes retiree and Gale Sharp along with Patrice McCrory and Willie Jean Olive took part in the event as breast cancer survivors.

Throughout the month, the pink "Cruisin for a Cure" truck will travel to local schools, events, and businesses in Attala, Leake, and Neshoba counties to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Every penny of the money raised goes to the American Cancer Society.

The truck will also be in Goodman for Homecoming on Oct. 20. Donations will be accepted, and people will have the opportunity to sign the truck during Homecoming activities. The truck will also take part in the annual parade and pep rally just before kickoff with Mississippi Delta at 3 p.m.

Other sponsors besides Holmes Community College include: Franks Chevrolet, Holt's Body Shop, Fair Propane, Ivey Mechanical, Michelle Nicholson State Farm, Premier Medical Group of Mississippi, First Financial Bank and Entergy Mississippi.
