In May of 2017, the club held the Morgan Scott Hooker Color Run in memory of a former member of the community. This event raised $1500 for the Clay County Cancer Coalition, and $1500 for Clay County Relay for Life.
Tammy will do anything for her students. She is super sweet, and loves to help the people of Eastern Kentucky!
