Homecoming Tonight: Welcome Home

Big image
Alumni, parents, friends, and fans, make plans to join us for Homecoming Festivities tonight, January 8 at 5 p.m. in the New Gym. We will be recognizing the 1995 Lady Panther Softball team and the 1994-95 Boys Cross Country team during halftime of the varsity games. There's no place like home; there's no place like Mars Hill.

Congratulations to the senior class who won this year's Homecoming Hall Decorating contest. Freshmen won second place, and juniors won third place.
