November was March of Dimes Prematurity month. The Bleckley County High School FBLA partnered with State Bank of Cochran and held blue jeans for babies dress down days. The idea was proposed to bank president Richie Everly by FBLA advisor Cathie Arnold who said “This is hopefully the beginning of many future endeavors for working together to build business and education bridges throughout our community.”
Thanks to the combined efforts of the bank and the the middle and high school FBLA organizations, $473 was presented to the March of Dimes. The FBLA thanks everyone who helped them get close to their goal of $500.
