The Howard/Glasscock Relay For Life will have a new look in 2012, with Manny Negron assuming the role of chair of the Relay Committee. Negron, claims supervisor at the local Wal-Mart, has previously served as Team Recruitment co-chair.
Debbye ValVerde, executive director of Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce, who has co-chaired the Survivor Committee, has been named regional Hero of Hope and plans to assist Negron in that role. She has been active in the Salazar familyâ€™s sponsorship of the Candle of Hope for several relays.
With the Community Wrap-Up Meeting earlier this month, the 2011 Howard/Glasscock Relay For Life concluded, although the financial books will not close until August. Co-chairs Vicki Stewart and Diane Wood announced the net funds total as $169,803.18, with other amounts expected to be added.
