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.
