Back-to-School Jamboree Saturday
A “Back-to-School Jamboree” for high school students in Marshall County will be held on Saturday night, August 25, beginning at 7 p.m. It will be held at the Multi-Purpose Building on North Memphis Street in Holly Springs.
High school students in grades 9 through 12 can attend by presenting their school picture ID. There is no admission, but the student must be a student of the Holly Springs or Marshall County school districts.
Early in December of 2006, members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority adopted this as one of their ESP programs. As they planned for the activity, it was believed that it could be bigger and better if more organizations were involved. As a result, efforts were made to invite the Greek sororities and fraternities in the county to collaborate in this endeavor.
Without reservation, the following organizations united to make this dream come to reality – Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity.
Members of these organizations have come together to provide a program for students in the county with hopes of it becoming an annual event. It is the intent of these organizations not to stop with the Back to School Jamboree, but to become involved in other activities to support the schools in the county.
Students will be favored with many fun activities, food, dance, music, and games. A special surprise will be revealed the night of the jamboree. The surprise will be revealed in a follow-up article next week.
The first 50 students to come will receive a door prize worth at least $100. Prizes will be given throughout the jamboree for lucky winners.
The management at the Multi-Purpose Building has requested that students wear gym shoes; no leather sole shoes, please.
