Dr. Rosanna Whisnant, principal at Newton-Conover Middle School, let the community know of a program available to Landon Webb, student at N-CMS, whereby drink tabs could be collected to offset the cost of his chemotherapy treatments. He was recently diagnosed with cancer and these tabs contribute toward the cost of his chemo treatments.

Mrs. Gigi Robinson, who is a Teaching Assistant at Conover School, heard about this program and brought in a whopping 30 gallons of tabs she had been collecting for years.
