Pictured here are the sponsors and the first members of Hillcrest’s chapter of Mu Alpha Theta, the honor society for mathematics; they were officially inducted into membership during chapel today. High school students in grades 9 through 12 who have completed the equivalent of three years of college-preparatory mathematics are eligible. Then, they must maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average overall in mathematics.
Those who are currently enrolled in a third-year college-preparatory math course are Associates. They are not members of Mu Alpha Theta but are likely candidates for membership who will be fully inducted once they successfully complete geometry and maintain the required GPA.
Congratulations to these hard-working scholars for their impressive achievement!
Mississippi State University held its annual Marching Honor Band as part of the Bulldogs’ first game of the football season against South Alabama this past Saturday, September 3rd. Participants were selected from the first 250 students in 9th grade or above to have registered. Hillcrest’s One Spirit One Sound band was well represented, with 7 members taking part in this thrilling experience.
Highlights of the day included being served breakfast, warming up with the Maroon Band, and parading to Davis Wade stadium, but the culmination of the event was a “mass band” performance at halftime.
The One Spirit One Sound band had its first lo-o-o-o-ong practice for the 2016 football and marching season Tuesday night. This year’s field show will be the first under new director Josh Landrum and is entitled “Light.”
