BETA CLUB OCTOBER SERVICE PROJECT — The Wheeler County High School Beta Club conducted an October service project to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Students created and sold pink ribbons (for Breast Cancer Awareness) and yellow ribbons (for Childhood Cancer Awareness) throughout the month, including at the “Pink Out” football game vs Telfair on October 20. In 2022, the club raised $223 for their annual donation, so they set a goal of $250 for 2023. They announced that they have raised and will be donating just over $330 to the American Cancer Society this year.
