Paris Western Night To Be Held Thursday
Thursday night (2/20), because of a conversation between Paris School’s Athletic Director Cary Barr and Paris Independent School Superintendent Stephen McCauley, the school system will honor the school with a Paris Western night that will see the basketball team and cheerleaders wear the Western Tigers attire.
“Coach Barr and I were talking during the 10th Region All A semifinals and he mentioned that several years ago we hosted a Paris Western Night and had a great turnout,” McCauley recalled during a text message. “He suggested that we try to do it again. I loved the idea, so we ran with it.”
McCauley said that they will be doing a chili supper, as well as a meet and greet before the Paris versus Pendleton County basketball game. Paris Schools Public Relations and Tech Support Specialist Whitney Gray is also putting together, what McCauley calls, an amazing tribute video, while the boys team and cheerleaders are going to be wearing Western High gear for the game.
“Some of our Middle School students are going to help serve dinner, and our elementary students are singing the national anthem before the game and the High School band is playing the Western High Fight Song when the alumni walk out onto the court before the game,” McCauley said. “It’s going to be an amazing night.”
Festivities will start at 6:00 Thursday night, with the meet and greet. The basketball game is slated to tip-off at 7:30. It will also be senior night for the Greyhound basketball team.
