Homecoming 2014--Scotland Pride!
School spirit and 'Scotland Pride' were certainly evident during Homecoming Week last week at Scotland High School. And that school spirit carried over, not only into the community, but into our other schools as well. One wonderful addition to this year's annual homecoming parade was entries from many of our elementary and middle schools as well. To top off the week of festivities, the Scots beat Purnell Sweat 44-10 and Amara Cromartie, escorted by Jaylend Ratliffe, was crowned Homecoming Queen.
