In October 2010, Lakers lost one of its wonderful staff members – Michelle Chiotti – to ovarian cancer. Michelle, a 2001 Laker graduate, battled this cancer for two years. During that time, Laker students made some beautiful teal cancer ribbons for her. Students and staff talked a lot about helping others and how students can make a difference. The Relay For Life was part of that discussion.
After Michelle passed away, staff members knew they wanted to do something in her honor, and they started a Laker Relay For Life team.
With the administration’s support, the team “Laker Anchor of Hope” was created.
The team has sold many feet, stars, luminaria bags, T-shirts, carnations and has held bake sales. Staff, students and administration have come and walked at Relay For Life and they have met more amazing survivors and family members who have struggled with this dreadful disease.
As a group, the Laker Anchor of Hope has raised more than $45,000 since forming in 2011.
The team is fully committed to the fight against cancer. Lakers is proud to have its students involved in events that are related to such a worthy cause.

Special note – Laker High School art students will be creating portraits of people affected by cancer, and the portraits will be showcased at the 2018 Relay For Life event in Bad Axe. The art department is looking for people to send in photographs (at least a 3 x 5) of loved ones who either succumbed to cancer, survived cancer, or are going through cancer treatments.
