  • Wiregrass Rise

    FBLA for HMS recently received a $150 check from Wiregrass RC&D.  The prize money was awarded as a result of the Wiregrass RISE Competition which was held at Landmark Park on Feb. 25.  The contest encouraged local youth to come up with ideas that would solve a community need or address an issue that needs attention.  The students presented their ideas and the business plans they created to accompany them to a panel of judges.  


    Preslie Ash (6th grader at Headland Middle School) and Makinley Warden (6th grader at Providence Christian School) were the regional middle school winners for the contest.  They shared their idea to start Wiregrass Waymakers which would be an online platform for youth to promote and sell their products and services in a safe manner.  

    Pictured left to right are front row:  Anna Cornelius, Wiregrass RC&D; Mike Snell, HMS Assistant Principal; Angerine Pope, FBLA Advisor and Business Instructor; Makinley Warden, student winner; Preslie Ash, student winner; Linda Saffold, HMS Principal; Nicki Ham Wiregrass RC&D; back row:  Ronnie Davis, Wiregrass RC&D; Dexter Grimsley , AL House of Representative for 85th District.  

    The Wiregrass Resource Conservation and Development (WRC&D) Council serves the following Southeast Alabama counties: Barbour, Coffee, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Geneva, Henry, Houston, Pike and Russell.  They provide valuable services to our community through a variety of projects and initiatives.

  • T-shirt

    Congratulations to Meryl Adams on winning the Color Run T-shirt design contest. The t-shirts will be printed on a dark color like navy or black because we discovered last year that the color powder shows up really well on darker colors. The graphic will be printed in bright yellow or green. It will have a very 80's inspired look. T-shirt orders have also been extended to Monday, April 19th. That is the absolute last day to order a color run t-shirt.
