East Hickman High School finally had their annual college fair since the school year of 2019-2020. Over twenty different colleges came to the campus including the Army, Navy, and National Guard. It was an all-around good experience for seniors and juniors to learn more about colleges that they may have not heard about before. The colleges handed out pamphlets showing different types of scholarships and what they will offer at their institute.
This week is free college application week, September 19-23. Seniors, make sure to check your google classroom for information from Mrs. Meadows. Some colleges’ free application extends past these dates— make sure to check your college of choice.
On February 24th 2021, the Lady Eagles’ basketball team went against Creek Wood for a new school first—participation in district championships. While the Eagles did not progress, there was an outpouring of school spirit which followed them to Creek Wood. One of the memorable players from the game was Abbie L. as she is a steadfast and great defensive player. On Friday, February 26, the Lady Eagles went on to host the first of the regional games at EHHS against the Community High Viqueens from Unionville.

Cadets marching, a band and choir, and the fallen comrade table were all part of the Veterans Day ceremony. East Hickman High celebrated Veterans Day with its fourth annual commemoration organized by Mrs. Robyn Hayes. Hickman County High ROTC members presented ceremonial aspects of the event.
Veterans in attendance for the event were recognized by their name, branch of service, rank, and status of combat service. The ROTC presented the Fallen Comrade Table ceremony that honored those lost or missing. The EHMS and EHHS band and choir came together to play the National Anthem and sing parts of each branch’s theme song.
East Hickman High School’s volleyball season has come to a close. The ladies obtained three wins, one of which was Santa Fe on September 24th. Freshman Kaydance G. states, “We tried and played our hardest and got the win.” Junior Saylor N. says the best game of their season was “Senior night since we got to represent our two seniors in the best way possible.”
The girls had different opinions on what is the worst thing about volleyball. Kaydance states “losing and feeling defeated” is the worst, but Saylor says “all the conditioning” may be the worst thing about volleyball.
Both girls agree that teamwork creates the best thing about the season. Gill states the best thing is “the team and how we are all sisters and love one another.” Saylor agrees about “how it is not an ‘I’ sport, and you have to be watching out for your team.”
