Abbie Lampley moves on to play college basketball following a successful season in which the Lady Eagles took the regional title, a first in East Hickman High School history. In addition to playing for the Lions, she plans to major in biology and environmental studies.
East Hickman’s Boys’ Soccer team takes the title for district champion— the first time in school history. Their regular season record was 10/3 with one tie. They played Richland for the district championship where the game went into overtime play with a penalty kick shootout, leaving the Eagles triumphant with 4-2 (P) as Jon Heath made the final game-winning block.
Class of 2020, never in your wildest dreams did you imagine ending high school in this way! You may have not even had the chance to become afflicted with “senioritus,” (that somewhat predictable itch to “just be done”)—but here we are… at this moment! The senior walk has become a tradition now at EHHS and is a celebration for all past teachers to “see you off” to the next step of your life. This year, the “walk” becomes a drive. It looks like many of you are taking the changes in stride as your vehicles sport jokes like “straight outta’ quarantine” and “Class of 2020-Skip Day Champions”! Class of 2020…you will go down in history!
As part of our celebration this week, there will be a series of short videos from EHHS’s faculty and staff with messages to the Class of 2020. We love you and wish all the best for you as you move into the next stage of your life. We will see you at graduation!
I have asked our student journalists who are available digitally in the Eagle’s Eye staff to choose topics and continue writing on our blog post. We all are seeing enough news about COVID-19, so they are writing about what interests them and what they are doing to fill this time. I am optimistic about our time apart as evidenced by the kind gestures many people are making toward each other and some of the offers put forward by many companies at this time. Exercise platforms are offering free videos, guitar and other instrument makers are offering free lessons, Audible has many free audio books that are available, and of course, if you haven’t seen a “how to make bread at home” video, then where have you been in the last week? I am sure new TikTok dance videos are up, Instagram posts are flying, and all of us “old people” are scrolling through Facebook. My point is that we are all separately together. (I hope all the students just thought, “That’s an oxymoron!”) Enjoy the student posts which follow.
Closed for the Holidays will be performed by the Senior drama class on Thursday, Dec 5th at 7:00 and Sunday, Dec 8th at 5:oo. Tickets are $8 at the door. Come out to have an entertaining evening and to support EHHS’s Drama department.

Sneak peeks… Come see how the play unfolds as a blizzard strikes…in Florida!
