January 23...mark it on your calendar
The Cocke County School Board meeting Thursday evening was brought up to date on the planned 100th. Anniversary of the Cocke County High School. Plans are underway to raise the anticipated cost of an upgraded auditorium, as a part of the celebration. A fundraising project for a new auditorium has raised $120,000 toward the estimated $2 million cost. The school board is scheduled to open bids on the project at it's February meeting. Chair of the Organizing Committee Nancy Brawley said the celebration is expected to get underway at 10 am on January 23 in the gymnasium. Dr. Jeff Howard, a 1989 alumnus of the school, and current Associate Vice President for Student Engagement & Dean of Students at ETSU will be the featured speaker. Craig Wild, a 1979 alumnus will emcee the program. Brawley told the board it will be the 100th. day of the 100th. year of the school. She said a number of former faculty and administrators will be on hand, including 79 year-old Joe Zavona, who served as Principal of the high school in the 1980's. Brawley says those with memorabilia from their experiences at the high school, should bring them to the celebration for a display. The board granted tenure to a number of teachers. They approved an agreement with the American Red Cross to use county schools to provide services during a disaster. And the members approved the purchase of five 84 passenger school buses from Mid-South Bus Company for a total cost of $543,625.
