Reciting their creed, the Celebrities drill team prepares to perform at Gupton stadium for the football team on a Friday night. The Celebrities’ creed is their tradition of spending a moment together before every performance. “It’s a tribute to our old director, and we [show our appreciation for her] by praying together that we all perform well for the crowd,” Woodard said. “It’s a way to bring up everyone’s spirits before a performance [so] I think it’s really important that we do it before every routine.”

Cheering alongside the other student section leaders, senior Emily Rangel tries to keep energy high while watching the football games. The next home football game will be on Oct. 15, at the Gupton stadium. “I wanted to become student section leader because I felt like I would be able to help bring everyone together and be as enthusiastic as possible after COVID made last year really rough, Rangel said. I wanted to make sure I had some sort of leadership position in order to be able to make my senior year and everyone else’s year memorable. My best advice to the underclassmen is to not be afraid to be loud and partake in anything they can. It’s not embarrassing to have school spirit and it makes the pep rally much more enjoyable if everyone participates.”
