CMS girls' teams raise money for employee battling cancer

By Calen McKinney

Campbellsville Middle School girls' basketball team and the school's football team recently raised more than $1,200 for a middle school employee who is battling cancer.

Daryl Ford, a custodian at the school, was recently diagnosed and is undergoing treatment.

On Tuesday, Oct. 11, the CMS girls' basketball team hosted a chili supper before its games vs. Taylor County Middle School. All proceeds from admission to the games and the chili supper have been donated to Ford.

The CMS football team recently sold t-shirts with the design "True to Da Ville" on the front and Ford's name and a purple ribbon on the back. All proceeds from t-shirt sales have been given to Ford.

Ford was honored during the CMS girls' basketball games, and given a framed poster of pictures of him with some CMS students. His family attended the event with him.
