Liberty School hosted Bedford County's first Relay Recess event last week. The school-age offshoot of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life includes educational material about cancer prevention as well as fund-raising and recognition. On Friday evening, a public Relay Recess event was held after school hours. The National Junior Honor Society at Liberty took the lead in organizing Relay Recess at the school. In all, the school raised at least $2,011, with one more fundraiser yet to be added to the total, according to NJHS advisor Catherine Gospodarek.
