Envirothon Team Takes First

For the fourth time, Ms. McCaleb’s Envirothon Team takes first place at the Duck River RC&D regional competition. Their next challenge will be the state competition taking place May 7-8 in Crossville. Envirothon is an academic match-up where students compete in topics of wildlife identification and facts, aquatic ecology, forestry management and logging practices, soil judging, and this year’s special topic “Agriculture and the Environment: Knowledge and Technology to Feed the World.”

Members include, from left to right, Andre Walker, Gracie Delaney, Logan Sutton, Destiny Shepard, and Spencer Tomlinson with Sponsor Leanna McCaleb

At the state competition, each student takes a written test, completes a skills test and is given an environmental scenario that they must solve and present. Each team has only 7 hours  to prepare their presentation which will be presented the next day in front of a panel of experts from the  UT Agriculture Department, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Association (TWRA), Tennessee Forestry Department, and the National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). The State winner will advance to the Nationals which will be held in North Carolina this year.

Good luck at the State Competition, Envirothon Team!

Welcome, Coach Austin!

By Alyssa T.Coach Chris Austin

East Hickman High School welcomes Chris Austin as the new football coach for next year. He played football for four years and basketball for three years in high school. During college, he was part of the football team at UT Martin. Currently, he is coaching at Hickman County High in Centerville.

Coach Austin accepted the position at EHHS because he feels that it would be a great opportunity for him and his future students and players. “I like being involved in kids’ lives,” says the future coach. He will be teaching history at EHHS as well.

As a coach, he hopes to change the atmosphere surrounding and culture of his football players; however, he hopes to accomplish a little more as well. With sincerity, the future coach encouragingly states that he wants to be a part of all the good things in the future for EHHS,“not changing the atmosphere in the football team, [but] in the school.” He loves competitions and watching his team succeed. He greeted parents, students, and faculty at the Community Night hosted by EHHS school on March 7, 2019.

Lip Sync Battle 2019

East Hickman High School held its annual friendly lip sync battle between the classes and departments. Freshman Thora Deloach dethroned last year’s champion, Mr. Scott Angell, who is one of the high school’s Spanish teachers. Thora and her group composed two choreographed dances—one to the song “Riptide by Vance Joy and one music piece from the kids movie “Trolls.”




Culinary Arts III Prepares a Five-Course Luncheon

Students in Mrs. Boehm’s Culinary Arts III class spent three days planning and creating a five-course luncheon meal that was served to teachers and guests. The luncheon menu consisted of panko crusted fried macaroni and cheese appetizers followed by a cold strawberry bisque topped with mint. The next course was a salad of mixed spring greens with red and orange peppers, purple onions, and homemade croutons. The main course consisted of a turkey roulade filled with cheese, ham, and asparagus on a bed of rice with carmalized onion.  The final dessert course was rich chocolate cake with both fudge sauce and strawberry coulis.

The Culinary Arts III team exhibited professionalism and decorum along with excellent time management and food preparation skills.

East Hickman vs Creek Wood

Last Friday, January 11th, East Hickman basketball teams faced Creek Wood, a well- known opponent. The East Eagles fought wing and talon in the match-ups but the Red Hawks unfortunately got away with wins against both the boys and girls. For the boys’ team, all was going well until the last quarter when Creek Wood made their advancement on the scoreboard. The boys suffered defeat by a mere point, with a final score of 52-53. Lady Eagles finished with a score of 30-37, possibly being their least successful game. With defeat heavy on the players’ minds, they congratulated the other team, holding their heads high. The Eagles will go up against the Red Hawks again at Creek Wood on February 5 beginning at 6:00 pm.
