FBLA Sponsors School Blood Drive


On Monday, January 19th, the JMH Blood Mobile visited Holston High School. Students participating in the blood drive this year were provided with breakfast beforehand, and were given a special T-shirt for volunteering.  The blood collected will be used to save lives throughout the region. Twenty-nine students took part in the event this year, and with one pint taken from each, we managed to  provide a significant amount of blood for this FBLA service project.  Junior Taylor B. and Sophomore Elijah C. are seen helping out on the blood mobile in the photo above.

Some student donors were asked to provide their thoughts on the blood drive:  Senior Elijah W. said, “I can’t wait to do it again”  Sophomore Nicki T. states that, “It’s nice knowing that I could possibly save someone."  Senior Logan C. added that “Whatever you do, always give 100%; Unless you are giving blood!” Fellow Senior Nick W. stated that, “Donating blood is such a simple thing that can have a huge impact. It makes me happy to know that my small contribution can save a person’s life.”

Marching Cavalier Band
Cinches Major Competition Win

Fall is the time for major band competitions, and the HHS Band once again made their presence known.  On October 4th, the band squared off with other band in the region at the Lonesome Pine Band Festival at the Central High School Field in Wise, Virginia.  It was the fourth time in the last six years that HHS had entered this event. A the end of the day, Holston's musicians had taken a majority of the awards.

Among the awards claimed by the band were:  1st place in Music, 1st place in Marching, 1st place in Drum Major, 1st place in Guard.  In addition, the HHS band was declared to be the AAA Champion and the Grand Champion of the Day.  Two individual members, Morgan K. and Grayson B., won the Soloist Awards for the Day. 

The Lonesome Pine Festival was one of five major band competitions that band director Uley Daniels and his students entered.  Leading up to the event, students committed themselves to hours of nightly practice.  Because of their accomplishment, the band's well deserved legacy continues.
