Sixty McCombs Middle School students, accompanied by staff, parents and administrators, marched in the Drake Relays Parade on April 21. Student groups that were represented included the Golden Eagles, Choir, and Band. Students carried a “Golden Eagles” banner, and wore Golden Eagles or McCombs’ music tee-shirts.
The Golden Eagles is an honor society for McCombs students who have achieved academic success and display excellent citizenship. Choir students, under the direction of Mr. Branden Oliver sang “Gold” by Britt Nicole, and spectators could hear McCombs’ students chant “Let’s Go Eagles, Let’s Go!” as McCombs marched past.
Principal Nancy Croy said, “McCombs students and staff are working hard to increase academic achievement and improve school climate. It is great to have the opportunity to showcase our successful students and educational programs at prominent events such as the Drake Relays.”
