October is breast cancer awareness month, and four NFHS staff members are tickled pink. Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Dykes, Mrs. Younghouse, and NFHS principal Dr. Hebert showed their support at the Atlanta Two-Day Walk for Breast Cancer on Saturday, October 11th and Sunday, October 12th. During the two-day course, over 1,100 walkers paraded 30 miles and raised over one million dollars for Georgia breast health and other breast cancer programs.

“I was amazed by how many volunteers and supporters there were. I especially enjoyed the girl scouts’ cheers on the sidelines!” Dr. Hebert laughed.

Dr. Hebert and many of the other participants survived breast cancer, and her prosperous fight inspired her and her two daughters to join the walkers.

“It really inspired us to go because it had directly impacted our lives,” Dr. Hebert stated, “It was such a great experience.”
