Seaford High School Celebrates Think Pink Day, In Honor Of Alumna

Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del. - Seaford High School trades in their blue and gold for Pink, all in memory of 1987 alumna, Katrina Johnson, who died of cancer.

"She unfortunately died of breast cancer at age 29 and it's important to stress to the kids that we need to push breast cancer awareness, and that anybody at any age can be effected by breast cancer," said Dara Laws, Seaford High School teacher.

The Ladies of Distinction handed out pink ribbons to the students for Think Pink Day. Three students were also recognized for the Flyest Fella, most Lovely Lady, and Top Teacher in pink. Hundreds of kids participated, some even effected personally.

"My aunt had breast cancer so I find that it's important to show that it can happen to anyone and anybody can get it," said student, Kayprece Canon Seaford High School's football team will carry on the pink theme.

Some will be wearing pink wristbands, socks and shoestrings. The cheerleaders and band members will also be sporting the color in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
