PRUNTYTOWN—Knights fans get ready to cheer on your favorite teams, as the second annual Taylor County Middle School (TCMS) Spirit Week Parade gets ready to hit the streets of Grafton.

The idea was that of one TCMS coach who wanted to spotlight the school, its students and its clubs, organizations and sports teams, as a way to bolster team spirit.

TCMS Head Football Coach Bobby Beltner wishes to invite the community out to show their support for the Black Knights once again this year, on Monday, September 12.

Whether it’s an athletic team, a special club or organization, a performing group such as the TCMS band or choirs or students who just want to show off their school spirit, everyone is invited to take part in this year’s event.

“I felt like we needed to do something to recognize the students and staff of TCMS,” said Beltner. “This is their parade, their night. Regardless of if they participate in an extracurricular activity or not, this parade is for all students!”

Don your black and red and line the streets of downtown Grafton, as the Knights fill the streets with cheering and school pride.

The parade is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m.

The route will run from the Taylor County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHR) parking lot, across the U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Frederick Burdett Warder Memorial Bridge and down Main Street, before turning onto Yates Avenue and ending at Grafton High School.

Those wishing to participate should meet at the DHHR parking lot beginning at 5:30 p.m. Entries of various sorts, such as marchers, trucks, floats and the like are all welcome!

“We hope that you all will come out and help celebrate the students and staff of TCMS,” voiced Beltner. “It’s sure to be a great time!”
