South Garland HS to host 50th anniversary bash

GARLAND ISD (October 2, 2014) Since 1964, South Garland High School has prepared students for success, fostering lifelong relationships between classmates and coworkers. The campus now invites current and former students and staff to commemorate Colonel history Oct. 2-4.

A three-day anniversary celebration will kick off with alumni and students decorating SGHS halls from 3-10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2. To commemorate South Garland’s 50-year existence, halls will display décor from the ’60s through the ’90s.

On Friday, Oct. 3, alumni are invited to a pep rally, reception and pregame tailgate. The spirit rally will begin at 1:40 p.m., and guests can begin checking in at 12:30 p.m. While a live stream will be set up for alumni in the auditorium, former band members are encouraged to revel in the pep rally as they did years ago. Interested attendees must bring their own instruments and notify the campus upon arrival. Past mascots are also asked to participate. Post-rally, a reception will be held in the library and school tours will be offered. Before the Colonels face Forney High School at 7:30 p.m., alumni will be treated to grilled hot dogs, chips and water from 4:30-6 p.m. at Homer B. Johnson Stadium.

To wrap up the celebration, current cheerleaders will host a meet and greet in the west gym from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4. Former students and staff will also be given the opportunity to take home school trophies.
