The Trego Community High School had their annual Red Cross Blood Drive on November 16. The school exceeded their goal of 46 donations with an ending total of 51. This earned them a $250 scholarship.

Many of the donations came from students, and twenty one students had appointments to the blood drive.

Donor Julian Coker commented on her first donation.

“Although I was nervous and it didn’t go as smoothly as I would have liked, I am still glad the blood I gave will save a life.”

In addition to the student donors, many student council members helped make the day successful. A few students worked at the admissions table, others escorted donors to the canteen, and other student council members worked the canteen. FCCLA members made sandwiches for the donors.

TCHS would like to thank all the community members who donated and Pat Haxton, Carl Mohler, and Taylor Tomsic for finding tables for the event.

TCHS students had a busy Homecoming Week, September 11 through 16.

On Monday, it was “Crazy Hair Day” for the students of TCHS. To kick off the morning, the students decorated their halls with a class theme.

On Tuesday, the students colored the halls on “Color Day.” Each class had a different color to represent their grade. Freshmen were pink, sophomores were blue, juniors were yellow, and seniors were black.

On Wednesday, since it was picture day, the STUCO club created a “Dress Your Best Day.” That afternoon, the FCCLA hosted the Powder Puff football game for the students.

On Thursday, the TCHS students and faculty took it back with “Decades Day” by dressing as their favorite decade. Later that evening, the seniors painted the downtown streets. Following that, the FFA sponsored a bonfire to burn the Bulldog effigy.

On Friday, taking it up a notch, the TCHS showed their Golden Eagle pride with “Purple and Gold Day”.  The Eagles spent their last two class periods enjoying a round of Knockerball, along with face painting and fence decorating.

After the high school shenanigans, they took a trip down to Main Street on the back of trailers and fire trucks to show more Eagle pride with Trego Grade School for a pep rally.

Before the Homecoming game, the candidates were selected, and the 2017 king and queen, Brendan Flax and Aleah Howard, were crowned.

Student Council would like to thank the Booster Club, Fire Department, the LEC,  those who donated and drove convertibles, and all those who helped to make this year’s Homecoming celebrations a success.
