The Learning Community (LC) program took to the volleyball court last month in a bracket-style tournament that raised $985 for The Breakfast Club, Inc. of St. Louis, a sisterhood of breast cancer survivors and co-survivors.

Each LC student paid a registration fee to compete in the tournament with teams playing volleyball with an over-sized pink volleyball. The fourteen teams faced off on Oct. 29 and Breakfast Club President Sherrill Jackson gave a talk about the organization’s work in the St. Louis community before accepting the LCs’ donation.
