Last Friday night was Coach Hutchcraft's last home games to coach, before he takes that giant step to retirement! The students and staff gave him a great going away send off before the games, not including all of the former students and staff members that showed up. They played St. Joe, so that always brings a crowd too! Happy retirement to Coach Hutchcraft!
Last Friday night, there was an awesome rally for the community at Mt. Olive Church, letting the surrounding communities see what organizations, like The Other Side, The Zoo, and Daughters of the Other Side have done in helping people with addictions! What a great job! The house of the Lord was busting at the seams with testimonies, and the glorious singing was great! Thank you, Tonya Hartwick Burt and Husband Dusty, for the wonderful job you are doing to save lives!
