Fourth in State!

Senior Emily Lewis competed at the 4H State Shooting Competition hosted by Mississippi State University at the end of July and placed 4th in the state in the rifle competition.  As a result, she is eligible to compete at Nationals in 2019.  She will train all year for this event.

Good luck, Emily!

Fabulous First Week of School

What a great start to a new school year! We began the week with our football team and cheerleaders greeting lower-school students, and helping them carry supplies and find their classrooms.

Upper-school students were updated on important school rules and procedures by their Student Council/Class Officers during an assembly which ended with a school-wide prayer led by Dr. Buchanan and a reminder from Coach Warren and the football team that Hillcrest is more than just a school… It’s a FAMILY!

Finally, the Senior Class had their first Caravan around campus, setting the tone for a spirit-filled school year.

We can’t wait to see what fun and fellowship the rest of the 2018/2019 school year will bring!

Stars and Scholar-Athletes

Congratulations to JoJo Moss, chosen as this year’s STAR student at Hillcrest because he scored a 31 on the ACT, the highest score in the senior class. According to the Mississippi Economic Council website, “The STAR Student will be asked to designate his or her STAR Teacher. The STAR teacher should be one of his or her elementary or secondary classroom teachers (active, former, or retired). The teacher selected is, in the STAR Student’s opinion, the person who has made the greatest contribution to the student’s scholastic achievement.” JoJo chose Mrs. Lindsey Noble as his STAR Teacher.

Congratulations also to Katie Martin, selected to be this year’s WAPT Blitz 16/BankPlus Scholar Athlete for Hillcrest. The annual banquet was held April 23 to highlight students from around the Jackson Metro area for their hard work in the classroom as well as in athletics.
