Mr. Bryan Berry is our new agriculture teacher and FFA advisor,   Mr. Wes Morgan is teaching Algebra II, Pre Calculus and ACT prep, and Mrs. Lori Wilson is teaching 8th grade reading and language arts and co- sponsors the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. We hope everyone has a productive and fun year.

The following officrs have been elected during the last few weeks: Student Council: Samantha Veliz - President, Jacob Gatewood- Vice President, Jasmine Taylor- Treasurer, Mia McCain/ Moriah Mize/Alec Zills- Reporters, Holly Gurley-Parliamentarian. Senior Class: Keaton Collins - President, Chris Copeland- Vice President, Jasmine Taylor- Treasurer, Hannah Lokey- Secretary, Sam Veliz- Reporter, Holly Gurley - Parliamentarian , Spencer Stewart- Student Council Representative.

Last week the homecoming activities got under way and high school students enjoyed a week full of dress-up days. Monday was Redneck Day, Tuesday- Tacky Tuesday, Wednesday-Way  Back  Wednesday, Thursday- Color Day, and Friday-Extreme Spirit Day.

On Thursday the students participated in several class competitions, in which the senior class dominated. Friday night the students cheered their football boys all the way to a victory against Gibson County with a final score of 40-33. Following the game, students enjoyed the annual homecoming dance.

On a more serious note, students and faculty were saddened at the death of long time teacher’s aide, “Miss Sue” Edwards. She greeted us each morning at the bookstore and helped many students during the course of her tenure here at Gleason. She will be greatly missed.
