Congratulations to Thomas Wilson and Lauren Parkinson, voted by their peers as the 2017 Prom King and Queen. This year’s theme was “Once Upon a Time,” and after the Senior Walk, students danced the night away at the Flora Gin. Thank you to the Junior Class officers and to their parents for working so hard to make it a night to remember.
Congratulations to the following students who placed at the State (!!) MAIS Science Fair last week. From L to R: Kamina Griffin – 1st place, Leah Wells – 3rd place, Austin Day – 2nd place, Aaliyah Newsome – 2nd place, and Beth Hammill – 3rd place
Yesterday, current 6th-grade students took their annual tour of the Upper School, in order to feel more comfortable in their surroundings when they go “up the hill” next year to become junior high students. They attended Upper School chapel, and then were shown the administration offices, computer labs, library, the junior high hall and classes, and the band hall. However, the highlight of the trip every year is eating break in the cafeteria, where they are allowed to purchase any food they want, including the “famous” cheese sticks.
Congratulations to Thomas Cain, Jr. — better known throughout the HCS halls simply as “Junior” — who signed a commitment today to play basketball next year as a Northeast Mississippi Community College Tiger. Thomas is the recipient of several honors and awards: he was chosen to play on the All-Conference 1st Team for 2AAAA, was an MAIS All Star, and was the MAIS 2AAAA Player of the Year. Furthermore, he is the sixth Hillcrest Cougar in the last 7 years to sign a full scholarship to play college basketball.
