Recently during the TCHS vs. Northern football game, the Tucker County High School Cheerleaders participated in a nationwide campaign to create a cancer-free world! Cheer for a Cure was established in 2005 as an activity for cheerleaders, student athletes, coaches, and fans to raise awareness, prevent cancer and save lives.
Our cheerleaders wore pink bows and socks as a symbol of their respect for all who are currently facing cancer, those who are surviving cancer and those who have lost their lives to this disease.
The football game was dedicated to Mr. Don Nestor, a member of our Tucker County community, who lost his battle with cancer this past summer. Through his children, grandchildren and nephews Mr. Nestor has been involved with almost every sport in Tucker County. At half time Don’s family was recognized and given flowers from the TCHS cheerleaders and Mrs. Lisa Dyer, a TCHS teacher who has won her cancer battle.
During half-time the cheerleaders collected over $410 for the Davis House at Davis Memorial Hospital.
