Yellow Jackets Bring the S.T.I.N.G.

S.T.I.N.G. members celebrate Spirit Week.

Forest Hills’ new pep club, the S.T.I.N.G., just got started a couple of months ago. It has rapidly become, however, the most popular club in the whole school. With nearly seventy members, students from every grade level and personality have come together to support the happenings at Forest Hills. S.T.I.N.G. members have been seen showing their school spirit at pep rallies, football games, bonfires, and tailgates. They are a unified force with which to be reckoned.

Earlier this year, the S.T.I.N.G.’s future advisors Rude Love (Mr. Rudolph) and Bumps Iron Storm (Mr. Collier) were not happy about the lack of school spirit at Forest Hills, so they teamed up with Student Council and the Booster Club to create a new club all about showing school spirit. The S.T.I.N.G., which stands for Students That Inspire Never-ending Greatness, was born shortly after. Its purpose is to raise school spirit and bring students together, which is exactly what it has done. The club plans to continue to support all of the athletic teams and to raise awareness about other school functions. New members are accepted at any time, and theclub continues to grow.

Are you ready to get stung? Any student can become a member of the S.T.I.N.G. for $20. Members receive a club T-shirt and a concession card which is good for free concessions at the football games!

If you would like more information about the S.T.I.N.G., please see Mr. Rudolph or Mr. Collier (club advisors), Jordyn Haney (club president), Shaquavia Sutton (club vice president), Kimberly Rivers or Shelby Rogers (club public relations directors), or Lauren Bunn (club special events coordinator).
