The Penn College women’s volleyball team, as well as its Elmira College opponents in Tuesday’s match, joined in a Bardo Gymnasium observance of the annual “Pink Out” for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “Each of our ladies played in honor of someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer at some point – several are still fighting the fight, some have overcome,” said coach Bambi A. Hawkins, learning laboratory coordinator for the college’s paramedic program (who also provided the photo). “It was fabulous to have the Elmira team join right in and coordinate with our ladies to create the largest ribbon they could.”
