Corrigan-Camden ISD raised awareness about cancer and raised money for Relay for Life during October. At our Pink Out Pep Rally on October 17th, Mrs. Angelia Purvis read a message from Mrs. Lisa McCollum. The message caused many in the audience to shed tears remembering their loved ones who had fought cancer or were currently fighting cancer. We wanted to share this message with everyone.
Mrs. Purvis told the audience:
Mrs. McCollum is a breast cancer survivor of 8 years. My mom is also a breast cancer survivor of 7 years. While Mrs. McCollum was out sick with her second occurrence of cancer, the staff at C-C Primary organized a Relay for Life team in her honor called Lisa's Ladies. Lisa's Ladies raised money for the Polk County Relay for Life for the last 6 years.
Mrs. McCollum wanted to let you know that Jake Bostock was her inspiration while she was going through treatment. She said if a little child could go through all this and still come to school every time he could that she could also try to be at work every day possible.
Many people at Corrigan-Camden ISD employees and students have been touched by cancer. Mrs. McCollum wanted to share this poem from an unknown author that she read daily to keep going.
"What Cancer Cannot Do"
Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.

Corrigan, Texas has always been my home, and Corrigan-Camden ISD is where the foundation began for my future. Being able to give back to the community and school who gave so much to me is a true blessing. Many people miss the positive of a small school community. They miss the ability to truly know the names and faces of the students and staff members. They miss the connection that can be made between home, community, and school. They miss the ability to move from a school to an atmosphere of family. This is why I count myself blessed to be a part of Corrigan-Camden ISD.
My motto of Believe & Achieve is one that I share. From the signature on my memos and my emails to books and quotes that line my walls, I truly embrace the idea to ALWAYS BELIEVE! We encourage our students to BELIEVE in their ability, even when the way seems difficult. We encourage our staff members to BELIEVE that they can and will find a way to bring to success to their classrooms. We encourage our parents to BELIEVE that by working together our students will benefit.
Our students are our greatest investment. They are the stones that will line our pathways and move us forward. Because of this, they deserve our time and dedication. We must find a way each day to show them their value and their ability, even when they cannot see it themselves. As a school, this is our charge. We are given the wonderful opportunity each day to help a student. Each day we have the ability to make their child a better person, a stronger student, and a person with eyes on a future that they know they can accomplish.
