EHHS Senior Walk: The Pathway to Success

On May 11th, 2022, our senior class walked through each East Hickman school. The walk started with the song ¨Celebration¨ by Kool and the Gang. The music played over the intercom to congratulate the seniors on their soon-to-be graduation from their K-12 education. The seniors started walking through the school from the CTE hallway to the front of the building. Then, they loaded onto a buses to travel to the other schools. Overall, the seniors enjoyed being in the spotlight for some of their final moments at East Hickman High School.

PBIS Student Reward Day: An Overview

On the 23rd of November, 2021, many students at EHHS were able to participate in a day of games and rewards for coming to class, getting good grades, and making good decisions. The reward day consisted of a Zombie Hunt as well as video game consoles and board games for students to play while they waited for a spot for the Zombie Hunt sponsored by the US Army recruiter Staff Sergeant Wilson. The English and history wings of the school were cordoned off for this activity to provide ample space for the laser tag.

Additionally, around lunch time, students got to see if they were eligible for a free large Kona Ice coupon. This allowed students to enjoy a free large Kona Ice snow cone during the day. Overall, people seemed to enjoy the break day in which they could take a moment to relax and wind down. Even those students in study halls used this time to work on missing work or conference with their teachers.

Game of Tiaras

The Class of 2022 senior play will be performed on December 7th and 8th, 2021. This two-night only production is an exciting event that our seniors have worked hard on all semester. The play will also be performed on December 15th during the school day for students to attend.

“Game of Tiaras” is a comedy written by Don Zolidis. When the aging king of a Magical Kingdom decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resembles a copyrighted character), terrible tragedy ensues. Terrible, hilarious tragedy. Combining the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones and the soul-numbing despair of Shakespearean tragedy, this adaptation of King Lear will leave you dying with laughter as the body count mounts. When you play the Game of Tiaras, you win— or you die.

The Harry Styles Experience- An Eagle Goes Out and About

After months, even a year or more, of no concerts, limited entertainment, and restrictions on most everything, one Eagle’s Eye staff member goes out and about, participating in her dream of seeing Harry Styles in person.

September 29, 2021 was my first “date” with Harry Styles. Harry’s first out of two shows in Nashville, Tennessee finally had a set date after being rescheduled for over a year because of COVID-19. My mom, her friend, my sister, and I all had pit tickets for the show. For us, this wasn’t just a normal concert. We spent months planning outfits, learning the Bridgestone rules, and of course, listening to his music. The day finally arrived after being a fan for eight years! This moment is what I’ve been waiting for nearly my entire life.

When the day arrived, we went to Bridgestone Arena just after sunrise to get in line for numbered wristbands. I was filled with adrenaline from the start. These wristbands guaranteed us our place in line for later in the day at 4:00 o’clock when we would have to line back up according to our number. After a lot of standing in lines and running to get a good spot in the pit, 20,000 people, including me, finally got to see the person we’ve been waiting for. Styles put on an amazing show singing hits like “Sign of the Times” and “Watermelon Sugar.” Two hours of music never went by faster for me. I can’t wait for our second date!

Pep Squad Organizes Caravan

On October 8th, East Hickman Eagles faced their rivals, the Hickman County Bulldogs, in a close and thrilling game with both sides showing their school spirit. The Pep Squad organized a caravan for students and parents to show their school spirit on their way to the game, and they were met with taunting signs from the Bulldogs.

Both sides were on the edge of their seats throughout the game with each team having a close call game; however, the Eagles persevered, with feathers “unruffled,” scoring 43 to 40—the Bulldogs surrendered the rest of the time in the fourth quarter. During the game, Ethan Irwin #22, wearing Parker Nicholson’s jersey, smacked the ball out of the air when Bulldogs kicked the ball for their PAT.

Eagles have since played Scotts Hill, winning that game. The Eagles’ season ended with a play-off game against Summertown. Congratulations to the coaches and football team for such an exciting season!
