Cadets marching, a band and choir, and the fallen comrade table were all part of the Veterans Day ceremony. East Hickman High celebrated Veterans Day with its fourth annual commemoration organized by Mrs. Robyn Hayes. Hickman County High ROTC members presented ceremonial aspects of the event.
Veterans in attendance for the event were recognized by their name, branch of service, rank, and status of combat service. The ROTC presented the Fallen Comrade Table ceremony that honored those lost or missing. The EHMS and EHHS band and choir came together to play the National Anthem and sing parts of each branch’s theme song.
As cold rain and wind blew, the Eagles ran through the banner to start the game. The Eagles’ Senior Night was played on October 25th against Zion Christian Academy where the Eagles lost a very hard fought defensive battle. The Eagles blocked a punt in the end zone and completed a two point conversion to tie the game 8-8 at half time. Zion scored what would end up being the game-winning touchdown in the 3rd quarter. Even though the Eagles held them scoreless in the 4th quarter, they were not able to score themselves. The Eagles’ last game is this Friday, November 1st, against Scotts Hill High School in Reagan TN, Henderson County.
East Hickman High School’s volleyball season has come to a close. The ladies obtained three wins, one of which was Santa Fe on September 24th. Freshman Kaydance Gill states, “We tried and played our hardest and got the win.” Junior Saylor Nolen says the best game of their season was “Senior night since we got to represent our two seniors in the best way possible.”
The girls had different opinions on what is the worst thing about volleyball. Gill states “losing and feeling defeated” is the worst, but Nolen says “all the conditioning” may be the worst thing about volleyball.
Both girls agree that teamwork creates the best thing about the season. Gill states the best thing is “the team and how we are all sisters and love one another.” Nolen agrees about “how it is not an ‘I’ sport, and you have to be watching out for your team.”
East Hickman High School again partnered with the Red Cross foundation to host a blood drive. Students seventeen and up could donate at any time throughout the school day while students age sixteen needed a parent’s permission; the donors lined up and were laid down on cots. Mrs. Kelly, the health science teacher at EHHS, led the blood drive while her HOSA students partnered with the Red Cross to facilitate it. HOSA members observed and learned as professionals drew pints of blood from people in the student body. HOSA members also located donors and escorted them safely back to class after donating blood. HOSA President Alex Garcia and member Fran Batson were in charge of admitting students, teachers, and parent donors.

The Eagles played the Fairview Yellow Jackets for the first time in years. Even though the Eagles lost, they played a talented Fairview team who went to state playoffs last year. Because of the reputation and proximity of Fairview, it brought students out to the game to form a student section where they chanted and supported the Eagles throughout the game. For homecoming on September 13th, the Eagles will take on the Stewart county Rebels. Make plans to come out and support your Eagles!
