Turn Tyler Pink is an event put on by Tyler Firefighters CARE, to raise awareness about women's cancer and support those who are fighting cancer, according to a TISD news release.
“Turn Tyler Pink promotes unity amongst our students and staff in support of a greater cause,” Dogan Principal Masud Shamsid-deen said, according to the news release. “Cancer has had an impact on so many of our lives, and in this small way we say that we will fight this battle together.”
In all, more than 3,000 TISD students wore pink in support of people fighting cancer.
Dogan received the trophy at the Turn Tyler Pink event on the square in downtown Tyler.
The Stewart Middle School cheerleaders and Robert E. Lee High School fiddlers also performed during the event.
