Central Hardin High students make donation to James Graham Brown Cancer Center


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Central Hardin High School raised $1,980 to benefit the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville and presented a check to UofL President James Ramsey and Brown Cancer Center Direct Donald Miller on Jan. 11. Students raised the funds through breast cancer awareness t-shirt sales, a raffle and other donations. As part of their trip to present the donation, about 20 students also heard about how cancer forms and the history of cancer treatment prior to touring research labs at UofL. During the presentations, student Rebecca MacKey had the opportunity to work with Dr. Lacey McNally, assistant professor in the UofL Department of Medicine, while Central Hardin County High School Principal Tim Isaacs looked on.
