Congratulations to Eyan Coldren who was chosen as the B97 Student Athlete of the week! Megan Higgins, an EHS senior golfer, was also a recipient of the award in mid-September.
As the Homecoming week competition heated up among the classes, students became a little more focused on donating. David Hardy, a senior, asked for monetary donations from his peers to purchase just a few more items on the eve of the final event day. He was stunned to receive five times what he had expected, and was able to purchase 432 more items. One senior who had donated five dollars had this opinion, "Even if we lose the competition, we will still be able to feed all those who need it in the entire town of Ellettsville."
Ultimately the senior class won the Homecoming points for the canned food drive, but all EHS students were proven winners. The Mustang student body almost tripled the NHS goal by collecting around 2700 goods. These were donated to the Richland Township Trustee Food Pantry.
Several members of the Best Friends Club headed to the Banker's Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Sunday, February 22 to attend the Indianapolis Pacers basketball game. Mr. Carmichael, the club's sponsor, organizes the outing annually. Students were able to see a great win by the Pacers and were each given Pacer's hats as souvenirs. The Best Friends Club is a social club at Edgewood designed to create bonds of friendships between EHS peers and students who simply need a friend.
