AHS takes part in National Wear Red Day

On Friday, Feb. 7 Apalachee High School, along with other schools in Barrow county, participated in the National Wear Red for Women Day. Every year the first Friday of February has been dedicated to National Wear Red Day by the American Heart Association as an awareness day for American women to understand their No. 1 health threat — heart disease. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, killing more than any other diseases and more than all forms of cancer combined — even breast cancer.
