The Istrouma High School Key Club recently presented a donation of $604 to the Mary Bird Perkins - Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center for breast cancer research.

The Key club raised the money by selling cookies and brownies that students baked at the school, pink cancer bracelets, bib hats and other trinkets. Every morning in October, students read breast cancer awareness facts, over the school's PA system.
