The principal of East Hickman High School, Mr. Beem, competed in a Free Throw Competition with Hickman County High School’s principal, Mr. Bentley. The competition occurred during half time at the East Hickman High School vs. Hickman County High School basketball game Friday night, January 26th, 2018.
From the free throw line, each principal had 10 shots a piece, and whoever made the most baskets was the winner. Mr. Beem started out the competition with a few baskets, throwing off Mr. Bentley whose first couple of shots were air balls. The fans on both sides of the court cheered on their principal in hopes of them scoring and attempted to distract the rival principal in hopes of them losing the shot.
Towards the end of the competition, the principals had a neck-and-neck score of 7-6, with Mr. Beem in the lead. Mr. Bentley took the last shot and missed, losing the competition and causing an uproar from the fans on the East Hickman side. After Mr. Beem was victorious, he hugged Mr. Bentley with good sportsmanship and was then joyously greeted by a group of East Hickman High students to celebrate the win.
This year during spirit week at EHHS, students will dress to the theme “We got them Beat” starting on Monday, January 29th and ending on Friday, February 2nd. All dress up days pertain to music. School dress codes still apply to all students including length of clothing, items being too tight, and revealing items of clothing. The only exception to school dress code is students may be permitted to wear hats if it corresponds with the dress up day.

EHHS will have an adjusted schedule on Friday, February 2nd in order to have students participate in spirit week competitions in the gymnasium.

EHHS Counselor Mrs. Jennifer Turpin relates the following information concerning the visit.
Members of the Business Education Council (BEC) visited Agrana on November 14th to learn more about the company and tour the facility. The council learned about the global operations of Agrana and the manufacturing process at the Hickman County plant. Members also toured the facility, met employees who work at Agrana, and learned about job opportunities and benefits at Agrana. The purpose of the meeting was to bridge the gap between the school system and local industries (what skills are needed, training, opportunities available, how the school system can help the company, etc.). Yesterday’s meeting was the first of a series of on-site visits the BEC is planning as employers and educators are brought closer together. The next visit will be to Accurate Energetic systems at the beginning of the year.
