Pep Rally & Dress-up Day, Friday
by: Bobby McDonald
Students and teachers participated in a dress-up day, on Friday, at SSMS, and participated in the pep rally.
It was a day of celebration at Sulphur Springs Middle School, on Friday, as students and their teachers dressed-up in their favorite Halloween costumes and hosted a pep rally for the success of the recent Rachel's Challenge Program. Students at the Middle School raised $750.00 by selling Rachel's Challenge bracelets, that they donated to the Micah Reed family to help defray medical expenses. The bracelets that were donated by Alliance Bank and City National Bank were sold for $1.00 each and the money collected to make the donation, as the students learned about making a difference in this world.
"You've truly made a difference by accepting the challenge that Rachel gave you, of doing something good for others and thinking of others before yourself," advised Coach Jeff Harris, as he announced the presentation, at the pep rally on Friday.
Keynote speaker for Friday's pep rally was Molly Millsap, Hopkins County Dairy Festival Queen and the high school mascot, Wally the Wildcat. Millsap addressed the students and encouraged them to continue to search for reaching their goals as she used the acronym D-R-E-A-M, relating a key element in reaching goals, with each letter.

Students in each class at the Middle School selected the students in their class that had the best costumes and a group of teachers joined forces to present a song and dance, that completed the Halloween spirit.
