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

Students and staff from the Attala Center raised $470.05 for the American Cancer Society and were able to sign the pink 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe provided by Franks Chevrolet and wrapped by Holt's Body Shop, both in Kosciusko. The students in practical nursing, business and office technology, Ingalls and workforce participated in the event, along with faculty/staff from the Attala Center.

At the event Mandy Burrell recognized guests of honor were cancer survivors: Jerrelyn Jackson, a seven-year survivor; Connie Henderson, a six-year survivor; Amy Tucker, a survivor for less than a year and Missy Woodfin, who is currently undergoing treatment and awaiting surgery.

Melissa Boswell, of Boswell Media, talked about the pink "Cruisin for a Cure" Tahoe and its schedule over the next couple of weeks. The Tahoe will travel to local schools, events, and businesses in Attala and surrounding counties to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Every penny of the money raised goes to the American Cancer Society.

The Tahoe will be in Goodman for Homecoming on Oct. 24. Donations will be accepted, and people will have the opportunity to sign the Tahoe Homecoming activities. The truck will also take part in Major's Truck Expo in the grove between 10 a.m. and noon so plan on stopping by to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.
