School year off to good start

By Matt Coker, THS Principal

It’s hard to believe that nine weeks of the 2019-2020 school year are in the books.  It’s been a great start at Tallassee High School and as we prepare for the next quarter of the school year it’s a good time to look back and recognize some of student leaders here at THS! 

A school year is only as good as the students in the building and we are very fortunate to have some of the finest students around.  Jimmy Jones, Allstate Insurance company with Kip Lowe, contacted me earlier this year and wanted to recognize some outstanding students in academics, athletics, arts, and school spirit. 

As I talked to our coaches, band directors and academic advisors, we wanted to ensure our students would represent our school and community in all facets to include being a good student and performer in their area of expertise but more importantly would be of outstanding character.  With that said, the following students are the first quarter nominees of the Allstate Insurance “Good Hands” Team of Tallassee High School.

Belle Haynes – Varsity Volleyball Award
Natalie Davis- THS Dance Team and School Spirit Award
Thomas Pollard- The Pride of Tallassee Band Award
Tavarious “Truck” Griffin- Varsity Football Award

Thank you to Allstate Insurance, Jimmy Jones and Kip Lowe for sponsoring these awards for our students.  Go Tigers!
