Colleton County High School’s Student Council held its annual “Big Man on Campus” scholarship competition Thursday May 5 in the Performing Arts Center. The $250 scholarship competition is judged on talent (lip sync contest) and the contestant’s response to a randomly selected question. The competition is open to high school seniors who meet the qualifications, which include a minimum 2.5 GPA and no OSS. Spring sports athletes were also recognized during the event.
Dakota Snyder was chosen as “Big Man on Campus” following a performance of Wild Cherry’s “Play that Funky Music.” Other contestants included Nick Salley, Trevor Owens and Matthew Germroth.
CCHS New Tech facilitator Holly Hughes kissed a pig for the Class of 2017’s annual “Kiss a Pig Contest” in which $675 was raised for FOCCAS during February’s Love Your Pet Week. “This was a very bitter-sweet day,” said Hughes, who will be leaving CCHS at the end-of-the-year to accept a position in Hampton County. “I have helped Rebecca Goodwin organize our “Big Man on Campus” competition since my first year with the district. These memories are ones I will always cherish. I am very proud of the work we’ve done and wish to thank everyone for their participation.”
The Pie-in-the-Face Contest, sponsored by Laura Clark’s CNT class, was also held during the event. Ryan Pearson and Holly Hughes took a pie to the face, gracefully, each raising over $900 for Colleton County Foster Care. Dr. Melissa Crosby, principal at CCHS, matched their fundraising efforts, for a grand total of over $2,700 raised.
