GOOD NEWS: Pink the Basin

Midland College cosmetology students and faculty member Michael Fields presented a check to Pink the Basin representatives Valerie Longoria and Rheta Duncan. The Midland College Cosmetology Department offered pink hair extensions for $5 each during the month of October. All proceeds raised were donated to Pink the Basin whose mission is to raise awareness of women’s health issues. In Midland and Ector County, reports show that four out of five women over the age of 40 do not get a mammogram. This vital organization is dedicated to assisting those who either have no health care coverage or have limited health insurance.
