Wildcat Weekly #7

 

A MESSAGE FROM DR. FELLOWS

Wildcat Community:

Convocation and the Homecoming activities were amazing! At the end of Convocation, we announced the Class of 2022 Graduation Date – Thursday, June 16, 2022, at 7p.

The number of people who supported our students by attending our parade and football game was impressive. We are so thankful and appreciative of the support our community always provides to the Wildcats!

The HoCo Dance on Saturday was, from all accounts, one of the best we have ever held. Our Wildcats had fun with their friends and danced the night away and a great time was had by all. We are especially thankful for our SCA Sponsors, Emily Chapin and Jessi Renehan, and our class officers for making the event happen!

Have a great remainder of the week and a wonderful weekend.

#WildcatPrideRunsDeep

Thank you!
