Judy Jackson, a teacher at Crittenden-Mount Zion Elementary, has been a part of Relay For Life for six years.
She began after a push to get every school in the county involved.
“Our team is not as strong as it used to be as far as people involved because education is a hard field to be in,” Jackson said. “But, I still relay because we still need to find a cure for cancer.”
Like most people, Jackson has seen the devastating effects cancer can have.
Her mother died of colon cancer and her 21-year-old nephew died from melanoma.
