Highlight of the Week!
This past week the Raider Softball was playing at home on Tuesday. Following the pre-game warm-ups and introductions, the National Anthem was begun. At the same moment, the SCPS Marching Band was practicing adjacent to the Eckburg Center. As the Anthem started, the band was brought to attention facing the flag at Grainger Field by Mr. Anthony Broadnax our Director of Bands. One of our parents pulled to the side of the road and likewise came to attention until the Anthem was complete. Kudos to Mr. Broadnax and the Band and to all who honor the flag.
