Go, Trojans, Go!

Written by: Kayla Mathews

The night of September 18th, 2015 was middle school band night for lee county high school and middle school. Middle school band night is for middle schoolers to come see if they would like to join marching band and get the full marching band experience.


 The middle school student seemed to be having a great time. When asked the two middle school student had very different opinions on marching band and their performance.


First we interviewed middle school student Kamryn Herd

I: How do you feel about tonight’s performance?

H: “I think we did really good.”

I: How did it feel to be playing with the high school band for the first time?

H: ” It felt pretty good, i think we did a really great job.”

I: Do you plan to join band next year?

H: “I’m not sure yet, I’m thinking about it though.”

After interviewing Herd we turned our attention to another middle school student; Chris Kim, who felt differently about marching band.

I: Did you enjoy yourself tonight?

K:“It was okay.”

I: Do you plan to join marching band?

K: “No, I’m not very interested in it.”

As you can see students had a different take on all that was going on. After speaking to the middle school students we talked to people who were already apart of marching band and asked the how they felt.

One person we interviewed was Mitchell Rosa.

I: How did you feel about tonight’s performance?

R: “We did good. We’re really improving.”

I: How did it feel to be performing with middle school students?

R: “It was frustrating at times but all in all it was fun. It was really great to see people interested in marching band.”

Mr. Carter had the same opinion as Rosa when it came to students being interested in band.  He hopes to see them when they get into high school.

The first month of school is filled with chaos for students, for teachers, and for staff alike. Betwixt the commotion, lies individuals who show integrity in times of great stress. The Student of the Month program is used to recognize and reward students who present these qualities. Being so, we are presented with the first group of students of the school year, Students of the Month for August: (From top left to right, and bottom left to right. Last one in separate photo) Kamryn Lane, Reagan Harrell, Dylan Mullis, Duntay Rockwell, Zizi Ohamadike, Kamryn Gillham, Melanie Lawrence, Shelby Bennett, Maggie Nguyen, Eddie Belcner, Alicia Rosa, and Lexi Blitch.

Another Win for LEE

Written by Jillian Branham

On September 14, 2015, Lee’s very own 9th grade football team was rewarded with their second win of the season. The boys ran on the field strong and ran off the field even stronger. The score of the game was almost a tie but our Trojans picked themselves up and showed both the audience and Westover that they are indeed The Mighty Trojans. With a score of 32-26 you can only bet that the team had a great time after the game.

“The names on these crosses aren’t just names. They have meaning. They could have been someone’s son, brother, or father.” says Marvin Mixon. He also said, “This is the 13th year we’ve been doing this”.

On Saturday, September 5th, all around the Albany Mall, Westover JROTC, Lee County NJROTC, and other volunteers helped set up the flags and crosses for the Field of Flags.

We don’t show up as a whole unit, we sign up if we can show up and then we worked from 8 am until 12 pm. Continue reading Field of Flags
