Dr. Cindy Felkins Discusses ART with BCHS Students: Awareness, Respect, and Tolerance of Those with Disabilities

In observance of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, FBLA and Business Classes at Bleckley County High School (BCHS) invited Dr. Cindy Felkins, Student Services Coordinator at BCHS, to discuss with our students what it means to be disabled, what this may or may not look like, whether we can actually see all disabilities, and how we should interact. The focus of the discussion was ART: Awareness, Respect and Tolerance. What is our role as citizens in addressing ART?

Good luck to the BCHS Lady Royals as they advance to the Sweet 16!!

CTSO Members Join the Fight Against Cancer

Bleckley County High School’s CTSOs spent the week educating students about Breast and Prostate cancer prevention and awareness. Each day at lunch, BCHS students had the opportunity to participate in an awareness activity. Each morning, interesting facts and prevention techniques, such as diet, were shared with the student body through announcements. The week culminated with the Pink and Blue- Out Game at the Royal Stadium where survivors, and those who are fighting cancer, were invited to participate in the balloon release and Royal run-through. The stadium fences were adorned with banners made by CTSO members in support of the fight against cancer. During the game, attendees had the opportunity to make donations to the BCHS Relay for Life team, participate in cake raffles and have their faces painted by CTSO members. The night was a great success in raising awareness and funds for cancer research. Thank you Bleckley County for participating!
