However, other officers, club members, and FBLA advisor-Mark McClaney actively participated with the week long activities.

Activities included: collecting donations, distributing informative brochures, selling Breast Cancer memorabilia, honoring breast cancer survivors, and remembering those who lost their lives to this disease.

Members made a special presentation to Mrs. Barbara Willis a nine- year survivor of Breast Cancer. She currently works at Butler County Magnet School as a secretary.

The FBLA Chapter of Butler County Magnet School raised $500.00 for the fight against Breast Cancer. Mr. McClaney was extremely proud of his club members for making this awareness project a great success.
