MA celebrates 50th; homecoming festivities Friday

Mary Ann Hurdle has returned from a week-long visit with her daughter Rachel Entzel and family in Mandeville, La. She also spent a day in New Orleans with friends.

Holly Springs was well represented in the Grove Saturday with Ole Miss standing off with the mighty Crimson Tide of Alabama. Needless to say Ole Miss came out on the short end of that stick, but everyone had a grand time nonetheless.

Be on the lookout Friday morning around the square. -- children in grades seven through 12 from Marshall Academy have worked like Turks all week preparing floats in honor of homecoming week. They will parade their finished floats after 8 a.m.

Friday night, Marshall Academy will celebrate its 50-year anniversary. Half a century ago, the doors opened and offered an educational alternative in a college preparatory school. Since then, it has grown and produced some of the finest alumni in the area. There will be a meet and greet at 5 p.m. in the Frank Swords Gymnasium for anyone interested in attending and visiting with friends from days gone by.

Homecoming for the Patriots is also Friday night. They will be facing off against a district team, the Stars from Winona. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. with the presentation of the court and crowning of the homecoming queen at halftime. All of these festivities will happen at Heath Barnett Field. Please make plans to attend, be loud and rowdy from the stands and root the Patriots on to a victory!
