From the Office of the Superintendent, Dr. Sandra Edwards:
I am pleased to inform all parents, alumni, and stakeholders that the Championship Football and Girls Basketball teams traveled to our state capitol this morning where they were present on the floor of the House of Representatives while a resolution was read applauding their athletic successes for the 2015-2016 school year. I would like to thank Mr. Steve Massengill for his dedication to bringing this resolution to fruition. Please join us in congratulating our athletes and their coaches (Coach Gordon Weir and Coach Holly Reichle) on this success as well as their recognition at the Mississippi State Capitol.
We regret to inform you that the 2016 Spring Exhibition has been cancelled due to the unexpected resignation of the coordinator. Please look forward to this event being held in conjunction with the 2016 Homecoming.
