AHSAA Selects Leadership Team

Congratulations to our Dwayne Riley for being selected by the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) to serve on the Student Leadership Team.  What a tremendous honor for Dwayne, his family, and our school and community!  To be chosen for this elite group of representatives from all 8 districts is something special!

What Good Sports

FBLA ended the month with a fund raiser for the March of Dimes.  Students purchased a vote for a quarter for either Coach Cherry or Mr. Hutto for the biggest Boss Baby.  Mr. Hutto led in the vote count all week, but on Thursday, Coach Cherry crawled to the top.  They raised a total of $649.25.  They were both good sports and both wore baby costumes on Friday.  We love our faculty and staff.  Thanks to everyone for your support of the FBLA and the March of Dimes
