What a fantastic Friday night! Everything got started about 2:30 with a parade and pep rally held at Bulldog Stadium. Special thanks goes out to the National Champion TVCC Cheerleading Squad for taking time out of their busy schedule to come over and participate in our pep rally.
After that, our varisty volleyball team got the evening started by posting another win. We had a tremendous crowd to see our Bulldogs win their homecoming game 41-32. Before the game, Brandy Hilliard was crowned homecoming queen for 2008. At halftime, everyone enjoyed the performance of the Bulldog Band. Also at halftime, there were several staff members recognized for their service to EISD. We have 8 staff members with 30 or more years of service to the district. These staff members include: Geraldine Carson – 30 years, Rob Tyner – 30 years, Janice Beasley – 30 years, Judy Wimberley – 31 years, Henry Carter – 32 years, Nettie Holland – 35 years, Chuck Powers – 40 years, and Elbert Kirk – 45 years.
Special thanks goes out to everyone who made this homecoming weekend a great success. The athletic booster club officers and members put in a lot of hours in preparation for homecoming. Our maintenance staff worked many hours making sure that our facilities were in top condition. Our EHS cheerleaders, which is the best cheerleading squad in this area, did a fantastic job with the signs and cheering on our Bulldogs.
Finally, I want to thank all the ex-students for making the trip home to Eustace. I hope each of you had a fantastic homecoming.
