UACCM Dressed in Pink and Denim

Once again the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton wears pink and denim to raise support for breast cancer research.
If you walked around the UACCM campus Friday, October 8, you might have noticed an unusually high occurrence of two things; denim jeans and the color pink. Not to worry, you haven’t missed out on the latest fashion craze sweeping the nation. Instead, you witnessed UACCM participating in Lee National Denim Day. Lee, one of the largest denim companies in the world, found a way for businesses and their employees to raise money for breast cancer while in the comfort of their favorite pair of jeans.

Every year, on the first Friday in October, participants can donate $5 towards breast cancer research in order to be allowed to wear denim jeans and something pink to work as opposed to whatever their day-to-day required uniform may be. The faculty and staff of UACCM were among the millions of participants of this 15 year tradition. A large number of the UACCM participants took this opportunity to show off their new UACCM 2010 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure team t-shirts that arrived earlier this week and were designed by UACCM’s very own Kira Livingston. These are just some of the many ways UACCM is contributing to Breast Cancer Awareness Month this year.
