EISD had a great homecoming weekend! It started out Thursday with the tailgate party and bonfire. A special thanks goes to Brookshires of Athens for providing the refreshments for our tailgate party. Friday was our district-wide pep rally. Later that day, our varsity volleyball team swept Mildred 3-0 and our varsity football team provided lots of excitement in their 61-41 win over Sunnyvale. During half time of the football game, Mallory Mobley was crowned homecoming queen.
I want to thank everyone that had a part in making this a successful homecoming weekend: Wendy Renteria, booster club president, and all the officers and members of the booster club for their work in planning events and organizing activities; Jack Wallace, maintenance director of EISD, and his crew for making sure everything was just right for all the activities, the Eustace Volunteer Fire Department for overseeing the bonfire, for spraying down the parking lot area prior to the game on Friday, and for helping with the parking; Kathleen Krumm and other members of the High School faculty for organizing the half time homecoming activities; and, finally, all the people that came out to the events. We appreciate your support!
