On Friday, August 29th, Holston High School welcomed back the students with their annual “Back to School Bash”. Students enjoyed each other’s company as they were treated to ice cream that was provided by Food City. They were led in cheers by the school’s award-winning cheerleading team.
The fall athletic teams were introduced. Senior football captains Seth T. and Jared D. were interviewed and assessed the Cavaliers chances in the night’s match-up with the Rye Cove Screaming Eagles. Students signed up for clubs during the event.
Perhaps the most important action of the gathering was a “Promise to Graduate” banner that was signed by all the freshmen. It will be prominently displayed in the school as a reminder to those who signed.
