There was a Memorial Service honoring those who lost their lives in the March 18, 1937, school explosion. The Memorial was held March 18, 2021 at 3:00pm at the Cenotaph.  Fred Parsons said the invocation and also a few words regarding the explosion. There was a moment of silence at 3:17 followed by Terry Dorsey playing Taps.  Following the memorial there was a dedication and ribbon cutting of the new bridge at the West Rusk Cafeteria. The Wilson family provided the much needed bridge in honor of Steve Wilson. We hope all of you can attend.

Also congrats to Hailey Wade on working hard and making the sale with her rabbits at the Harvest Festival. The Harvest Festival Is a county show that represents schools from 5 counties.  We are excited to have all the students back at school and even more excited to have a barn full of great students and awesome livestock.
