Abbey Hogan—Homecoming Queen 2016

Congratulations to Abbey Hogan, daughter of Shannon & Susan Hogan and the late Angie Hogan on being crowned Homecoming Queen.




Thank you to everyone who helped to make Homecoming a huge success! The student council led by Mr. Kyle Christmas did a fantastic job. A thank you to all the parents who helped with dress up days, door/color wars, fence designs, and for coming out and supporting our Cougars at the game. This is a great week for our school, but could not happen without the support of our parents and teachers.

Susan Smith, Melissa Martin, Beth Norris, Sally Corrigan, Charlsie Hand, Paula Kennedy, Cecy Rocconi, Frances Ann Camp, Lindsey Brewer, Jordan Baldwin, Kristen Duncan, Carrie Chance, Kaley McCarthy, Caroline Burchett, and Evelyn Turner were present for this exciting night.
