Colleton County High School enjoyed Spirit Week before holding the culminating 2017 homecoming activities at halftime of Friday evening’s region football game against Beaufort High School.
The Spirit Stick was awarded to the senior class following a tie-breaker with the junior class for the most spirit during Friday’s pep rally. The Class of 2020 finished in third place and the Class of 2021 was fourth.
The student council sponsored a paint soccer event in September at the Walterboro Soccer Club field with approximately 50 students participating. In addition, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes held a gathering Sept. 4 with around 25 faculty and students attending.
Homecoming results for the five competitions held throughout the week at CCHS were as follows: Penny war – Class of 2021, raising approximately $350 used to pay for homecoming expenses; banner competition – Class of 2018; dress out – Class of 2018; sidewalk chalk – Class of 2019; pep rally skits – Class of 2020.
