Students MUST BE 16 YEARS OF AGE AND A LICENSED DRIVER in order to purchase a parking space. Students who will turn 16 years of age and obtain their license AFTER JULY 30 will purchase their parking space in the MSHS office as that occurs.

Before students arrive to buy parking on July 30, they need to have this Google form filled out: If they do not have the Google form completed before they arrive, they will have to fill it out on-site and this will slow their process of selecting a parking space.

Also, students may pay the $15 parking fee on-site by cash, check, credit, or debit. To speed up their process, students may NOW pay ONLINE before they arrive by going to BE SURE TO PRINT AND BRING YOUR RECEIPT TO SHOW THAT PAYMENT HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE. YOU MAY ALSO SHOW AN ELECTRONIC COPY OF THE RECEIPT ON YOUR PHONE.

MSHS honored by AHSAA for sportsmanship

By Todd Thompson

MONTGOMERY – Muscle Shoals High School was one of 99 Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) member schools have been announced as AHSAA Sportsmanship Schools for the 2018-19 school year. The schools, recognized for being ejection free and receiving no more than one non-sportsmanship school fine for the just completed school year, will be honored at the AHSAA Sportsmanship Luncheon during the 2019 AHSAA Summer Conference and All-Star Sports Week.

The 12th annual luncheon will be held at noon on Friday, July 19, at the Montgomery Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center.

Among the schools to be recognized are Hubbertville High School and the Alabama School for the Blind, both of which have been ejection and fine-free ten out of 12 years. Alabama School for Math and Science has reached that goal nine times, while four high schools, Alabama School for the Deaf, Booker T. Washington Magnet High School, Calhoun High School and Colbert Heights High School have accomplished the feat eight times in that time span.
Nine other schools being recognized this year have had seven years without an ejection: A.L. Johnson High School, Athens Bible High School, Hackleburg High School, Indian Springs High School, Keith High School, Lexington High School, Marion County High School, Mars Hill Bible High School and W.S. Neal High School.

Thirteen high schools earned the Sportsmanship Banner for the sixth time in 2018-19, and thirteen other schools for the fifth time. Overall, 376 of the AHSAA’s 416 high schools (90.4%) have combined to earn the Sportsmanship Award recognition 1,195 times since 2008.

“We are extremely pleased to recognize 99 high schools for this noted accomplishment,” said AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese. “Our total fines were down 4.1% in 2018-19 over the previous year, and we thank all our schools for their commitment to teaching good sportsmanship and upholding the regulations and by-laws created by our member schools.”
