PRUNTYTOWN—To help bolster school spirit, one Taylor County Middle School (TCMS) coach came up with an idea that would spotlight the school, its students and its clubs, organizations and sports teams.
TCMS Head Football Coach Bobby Beltner wishes to invite the community out to show their support for the Black Knights during their first-ever TCMS Spirit Week Parade.
“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 this Tuesday, September 21, at 6:00 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.
Upon the parade’s conclusion, there will be a celebration of all things TCMS Knights, where the school’s sports teams will be recognized on the Grafton High School Softball Field.
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!”
