From the Superintendent
Basketball season is rapidly winding down. Basketball is certainly one of our most popular activities here at Boyd, and I want to thank everyone who makes this activity possible for our students. First of all, our coaches who volunteer their time, Jeanne Hagar, Amanda Prater, Chris Sullens, Chris Perry, Donna Newby, Alan Burger, Greta Hoover, and Brent Warren. Our new athletic director, Dale Stubblefield, has also done an outstanding job for us. Our bus driver, Mr. Leonard Clemons, has always been reliable and makes sure that your children are safely transported to and from away games.
We also are thankful for all of our parents who have volunteered their time by working in the concession stand. This is an important part of our games, and you have all done such a wonderful job. Our booster club has been so helpful in organizing this.
I also want to thank all of the parents of our players who have brought food for our hospitality room. This has been a wonderful touch to our games this year. Visiting coaches and officials have often commented on how much they appreciate it. It causes them to enjoy coming to Boyd even more. In Romans 12, the apostle Paul says that we should be “given to hospitality”, and our parents are excellent examples. It makes me so proud of our school when visitors compliment our parents.
Finally, a big thanks goes to all of our teachers who take turns working the gate. There are so many who work hard behind the scenes to make sure that our students have opportunities to play sports.

Our girls have been invited to participate in these programs. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students.
