Facilities Services Wears Pink

Facilities Services Administrative Support team members Amy Miller, Arlene Williams, Mitzi Prowell and Ann Free show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness during "Wear Pink Day."Dozens of Facilities Services employees sported pink last Wednesday to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month on campus.

The department’s “Wear Pink Day” was launched this year to support and recognize those who have been touched by the disease.

“A lot of us have been impacted in different ways by breast cancer, and with the high visibility our department has on campus, we thought this was a great way to raise awareness,” said Facilities Services Administration Specialist Veronica Huff.

“Whether it is a friend, relative, or co-worker, we have all known someone touched by breast cancer,” Huff said. “Wearing pink one day in October is a great way to support a great cause.”

Huff said she hopes “Wear Pink Day” will expand every year moving forward.
