Cameron Johnson Participates in 2016 Border Bowl

Congratulation for Cameron Johnson, HCHS Senior, for being selected to play in the 2016 Border Bowl.  Jason Spencer, Head Coach for the Wildcats, was  selected to coach special teams in the annual Bowl game.

The Border Bowl is a non-profit organization established to promote high school football in Kentucky and Tennessee.  The objective is to provide an All-Star Game featuring the top players in Kentucky and Tennessee.   This game allows players to have the opportunity to play, practice, and battle it out for the rights to the border.  It also allows high school seniors an opportunity to gain additional exposure and, perhaps, earn a scholarship for college.  Each player must be nominated by his coach.  All player profiles are reviewed by a panel of coaches from their home state to field the best possible team.  

Players selected for the Border Bowl are treated as All-Stars from the time they check into camp until they leave for home.  Each player receives a personalized jersey, food, and lodging for the entire time at camp, insurance for all activities, a sweat suit, t-shirt(s), honors banquet ticket, a Border Bowl Ring, and the opportunity to meet numerous former NFL, CFL, and NCAA coaches.

 


College Credit While in High School

“Parents, if you are interested in learning more about all the different ways Henry County High School students can earn college credit while still in high school, please come to our informational meeting on Monday, February 1st, at 6:00 p.m., in the HCHS media center.  There is an option for everyone – from full-time at JCTC Carrollton your senior year  (Early College = a full year of college credit) to a “hybrid” model (spend ½ the day at HCHS, the other ½ at JCTC) to dozens of classes offered for dual (college and high school) credit right here on the HCHS campus every day.  Get a jump on college at a fraction of the cost while completing your high school graduation requirements!”

October 19th – 23rd is National School Bus Safety Week

October 19th – 23rd is National School Bus Safety Week.  Henry County Public Schools will be using this opportunity to bring greater awareness to students of the importance of bus safety.  We want to first recognize those individuals who are the front line of bus safety.  They are our bus technicians, drivers, monitors and administrative staff who work tirelessly to provide students a safe ride to and from school and other school activities.  Statistically, there is no safer way for a student to travel than on a school bus.  We should all take a moment during this time to thank them for what they do.

Take the Pledge

Pledge to be a School Safety Superhero!  This year's Kentucky School Safety Week focuses on building-up the self-esteem of the students in your school, while working toward an environment free of Bullying, Cyberbullying, Harassment and Conflict.   From Superman to Captain America most Superheroes started with problems or issues and turned their uniqueness into a power or force.  They used their power for the  betterment of society.  The campaign highlights the word SUPER and qualities  necessary to be a SUPERHERO at school. S-Strong, U-Understanding, P-Powerful, E-Encouraging and R-Respectful, by using these character words to teach and describe our students, they can become School Safety Superheroes!
