Breast cancer clothing drive

East Wake Middle School Warriors invite the public to take a stand against breast cancer. This schoolwide event was brought about by a current student who wanted to collect scarves for breast cancer patients like her mother. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To remember this time and celebrate the strides that have been made against breast cancer, EWMS is collecting new scarves and hats for breast cancer patients. Scarves and hats can be dropped off at East Wake Middle School in the front office in the pink drop box, beginning Oct. 1. The event will end Nov. 6 when students will PINK out East Wake Middle School. Students will participate in a “Walk for the Cure” and will stand together and form the pink ribbon to show their support.

Art competition winners

Sixth-grader Keith Ambroya and eighth-grader Wade Creech, students at Zebulon GT Magnet Middle School, were two of six winners in this year’s Young Artists Competition sponsored by Professional Educators of North Carolina. Ambroya and Creech, along with their art teacher, were recognized at a Sept. 21 ceremony in Raleigh, where they were awarded certificates and $50 cash prizes.
