Students’ compassion heartwarmingPublished 10:27am Wednesday, November 20, 2013
Many times, the only way students from one school district get to interact with other students is at competitive sporting events, rooting against each other.
Saturday, students from many districts came together and cheered for a single cause.
Rock Hill High School played host to a fundraising event for a Symmes Valley cheerleader undergoing cancer treatments.
The community service project of a Rock Hill honor society student, the event brought together cheerleaders from all over the county to model eveningwear and show their support.
Other school groups and faculty also raised money for the girl.
Although only one body can physically fight a virus or disease, events like this fashion show are examples of how many people can help fight the side effects that many times accompany a disease, such as depression or financial strain.
It is especially heartwarming to see students from all over the county reaching out for a girl who many of them may not have known.
Cancer is a scary and serious disease at any age and we are proud of our county’s students for getting involved to make one girl’s struggle just a little bit easier.
