At the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Plainview-Old Bethpage (POB) School District’s John F. Kennedy High School joined forces with the American Cancer Society to hold a “Pink Out” event, which raised over $600 for breast cancer research and raised awareness throughout the community. Students, dressed in their best pink ensembles, decorated the campus with banners, balloons and flags provided by the American Cancer Society and sold pink-colored goods donated by local small businesses such as Family Bagel. During the evening’s football game, fans gathered to honor varsity cheerleading coach Stacy Brennan for her bravery and dedication to the community despite her personal battle with breast cancer.
“The district never turns down an opportunity to unite the community under an important cause such as promoting breast cancer research,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lorna Lewis. “Our students and faculty are passionate about giving back, particularly when the cause involves one of our own. This event would not be possible without the dedication and participation by all staff and students involved.”
POB John F. Kennedy High School brought in the Homecoming weekend with school spirit and Hawk pride.

Hundreds of fans gathered to cheer on the Hawks who were ultimately victorious, defeating Hicksville High School 26-14.
