Campus Visits (during second and third lunch)
Tuesday, February 23 - Spartanburg Methodist College
Wednesday, February 24 - Jennifer Little, Spartanburg Community College (BMW Scholars Program)
On Friday, February 5th we will have our Golden Football ceremony at 2:30 PM. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl. The NFL (National Football League) is awarding every player who played in a Super Bowl a Golden Football to present to their high school for display. SHS has had 4 players play in a Super Bowl, which is shared as most in SC, along with Spring Valley and Lower Richland. The district and SHS would like to bring these men on campus for the ceremony, which is planned for February 5th. It would be much like a pep rally, as we would use 7th period on this day. The men to be recognized are: Howie Williams, Steve Fuller, Stephen Davis and Landon Cohen.
Also, on Wednesday, March 9th we will have Wes Moore to visit our school. Many of you may have heard of him as he is the author of The Other Wes Moore and The Work, both of which are New York Times Bestsellers. He is being brought to SC by the SC Association of Non Profit Organizations as the keynote speaker for their conference. We have a wonderful opportunity to get him here during that time. His book The Other Wes Moore is about two young boys both named Wes Moore …. raised in the inner city by single mothers. The author went on to be successful … his namesake is in prison. I think you would enjoy.
