Community comes together for first evening pep rally
Cy Springs hosted an evening introductory show/first-time evening pep rally that was held on Aug. 29 on the football field, and showcased a number of different acts from the cheerleaders to the HOLA club. After additional performances from the band, colorguard, and the Panteras, the rest of the night was spent introducing the various different fall sports teams.
“As a senior, this is my last performance at a pep rally, and it’s really nice to see the community come together,” senior colorguard first lieutenant Mariana Medina.
The evening pep rally not only served to bring the community together for one night, but also was used to establish the era of change Cy Springs is determined to usher in this school year.
“I hope that this year’s 'Meet The Panthers' engages our students and helps them have more school spirit and comradery,” assistant principal Nicoya Rogers said, “So they can come together in a unified goal; helping themselves and Cy Springs to be great."
The stands were full of not just current students, but future ones with their parents as well. Many faculty members also came out to support, and Twistee Treat was giving out free ice cream during the event.
“It’s just a night for the community, school, and everyone else to come out and show school spirit and be one, I guess,” varsity football player Joshua Vasquez said. “I’m just hoping that this many people show up to our games, too.”
