NEWPORT-As Cocke County High School students celebrate homecoming next week and look forward to Friday night's game with archrival Jefferson County, they are also coordinating their festivities with an ongoing Breast Cancer Awareness program.

In conjunction with the school's third annual Pink Out football game, art students taught by Myra Amason have donated original artwork for a silent auction.

Currently the artwork is on display in the CCHS library, and next week will be moved to the lobby of Newport Utilities. Students focused their work on breast cancer awareness.

Silent bids are now being placed and will also be taken the night of the CCHS/JCHS football game September 28.

Anyone wishing to place a bid on the artwork may do so at either location.

The CCHS Key Club is also onboard and will conduct their popular penny wars among the classes. They will also be selling pink ribbons by which teachers and students may purchase and inscribe in honor of a loved one.
