The El Dorado Wildcats and Lady Cats basketball programs plan to host a “Pink Out Game” on Friday, December 3rd to bring awareness to breast cancer. There will be a presentation to show recognition of those who are fighting, have won the fight, or have won their fight, but are, unfortunately, no longer with us. The presentation will happen between the varsity games that evening. The teams ask that community members send names of those who might be interested, whether it be self or other individuals, to be recognized by filling out the survey found on the EHS website or Facebook page. Everyone who is nominated will be able to meet both teams and be presented with a specially designed “Wildcat Family” t-shirt. The deadline to submit nominations is October 29th. For additional information, contact Coach Porter or Coach A. Curtis.

Caroline Callaway, teacher at El Dorado High School, attended the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) where she received a BA in Journalism. Ms. Callaway currently teaches AP Language and Composition and 11th grade English. Ms. Callaway chose to attend Ole Miss because even though it is a big SEC school rooted in tradition, it still has a small-town feel. “The campus is beautiful, and Oxford is a fun place to live!” Ole Miss is known for its tailgating experience. “The night before every home game, fans wait at the edge of the grassy center of the Ole Miss campus. When the alarm sounds, people rush into The Grove to set up their tailgate tents for the following day. Some families have had the same spot for generations. Ole Miss fans also go all out. Tailgates will include chandeliers, elaborate centerpieces, and tvs to watch the game.” Along with tailgating, Ms. Callaway said that working for the campus newspaper, The Daily Mississippian, also made her Ole Miss experience special. “I made great friends and got some awesome work experience during my time there!” If you are interested in learning more about the University of Mississippi, visit https://olemiss.edu/.

College Wednesday: Teacher Edition Hayden Nooner, teacher at Barton Junior High, attended Harding University where he received a BA in Theatre. Mr. Nooner is currently teaching Slams & Jams and MP3. He was also just named El Dorado School District Teacher of the Month! When deciding what college to attend, Mr. Nooner was looking for “a smaller school with a big school feel.” He felt Harding was the perfect fit; it’s a big campus with several degree options but still maintains that family-style atmosphere. “The class sizes are fairly small, so it is very easy to connect with your professors and classmates.” When asked what made his Harding experience special, Mr. Nooner noted that students have the opportunity to study abroad at one of HU’s six international campuses. As a sophomore, he studied in London and was able to travel to ten different countries that semester. Thank you, Mr. Nooner, for sharing your Harding experience!
