Another fun week in the books! Water Valley High students, teachers, and faculty are exceeding expectations in every area. The school’s shenanigans are here and more prevalent than before.
The student council has officially begun its year by arranging various group meetings to discuss this year’s plans, themes, dress-up days, fundraisers, officers, and much more! The council has also made an executive decision for this year’s 2023-2024 officers. The elected officers are President Evey Brooks, Vice-President Jenna Trusty, Secretary Bayleigh Jaudon, Treasurer Madaryn Smith, Digital person Jake Crawford, and ninth grade representative Taylor Franklin.
The student council is very busy, as homecoming is right around the corner! Young ladies who aspire to be considered for homecoming nominations are signing up nonstop. Nominations were open from Monday to Friday, a complete week, and the list seemed to get longer each day. The student council members are working overtime trying to arrange everything that goes into homecoming. With lots of debates and voting, the dress-up themes for the week of homecoming are official thanks to the council! Water Valley High will have a groovy and disco-themed week.
The Interact Club, along with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, are taking officer nominations to organize their groups. In an interview with the president of the Interact Club, Jake Crawford elaborates, “The Interact club is an extension of the Rotary Club developed for the improvement of the community, and overall serving Water Valley. We do many acts of service such as food can drives, a city-wide clean up day, a library day for the children, and many other attributes to support the community.”
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is not only a young group of athletes but also a group of dedicated Christian youth. Water Valley High’s FCA has officially launched its traditional Wednesday meetings. These meetings are organized to fellowship with other Christians and are promoted in hopes of bringing others closer to Christ.
These meetings are hosted every Wednesday morning for each student to join. They consist of breakout sessions, prayer groups, and Bible lessons. Every once in a while a yummy snack is provided. While FCA is just launching, all of the students gather in the gym to bond over the love of Christ!
The golf team exceeded expectations last week as they held matches at the local country club throughout the whole week! This past Tuesday, the golf team hosted their second tournament of the year competing against teams including as Grenada and Senatobia.
The girls placed first overall with a total score of 109 points. Bethany Pryor placed first individually with a leading team score of 47 points.
The boy’s team also finished first with a total score of 197 points, with John McMinn tying for the first place spot with a 47-point lead. Thursday, the Devils took on Bruce – the boys fell short, and the girls once again dominated! The golf team is off to a good start and swinging better than ever!
Friday Night Lights have kicked off! The Water Valley High football team took on Independence this past Friday.
While the outcome wasn’t what we were hoping for, it was still an exciting night for the books. The Blue Devils showed great sportsmanship, positive attitudes, and played to the best of their abilities. The band was hyped, louder than ever, and presented their first halftime performance. The cheerleaders led the crowd with big smiles and their best cheers all night. The color guard team showed their support with a colorful halftime performance and stand-tune cheers to excite the crowd.
The student section, parents, and community traveled with the Blue Devils to show their school spirit and support—community please travel to support the Blue Devils this Friday as they compete against North Pontotoc at 7 o’clock.
To sum up, the Water Valley High activities have officially started. Many students are excited about all of the fall sports and, for sure, the athletes. There are many things taking place inside of the Blue and White, and you will be the first to hear about it each week!
