Taylor County Middle School kicked off its Relay for Life fundraiser on Friday, Feb. 29. All of the money the school collects between now and the end of the year will go to the American Cancer Society for cancer research. Students and staff donated at least $1 each to wear a hat to school. Laura Gordon's eighth grade class collected the most money, $204.44, on Friday during "Hat's Off to Relay for Life Day." Holly Westbrook's seventh grade class came in second place with $171.40. The school's total for the day was $1,137.29.
