WITH OVER 4,000 HITS A YEAR!!!!
Homecoming week was an interesting week for Mann students. Very unforgettable and one to remember. From Hillbilly Day to Costume Day, Mann students had a lot to share during this amazing week.
The game, however, was the highlight of the week. Well, not the game in total, but halftime. The Mann Patriots lost to Union County 14-0, but that did not damper to search for the 2007-2008 Homecoming Queen.
The following were this year's homecoming court winners!!!!!!
Freshman Princess: Bria Starks
Sophomore Princess: Whitley Kelly
Junior Princess: Ashley Brown
Senior Princess: Katie SikkeleeAND HOMECOMING QUEEN 2007-2008 IS....................................................
Congratulations to Brienna Jones for winning this year's 2007 Homecoming Queen!

By unfortunate circumstances at the end of the week, the Homecoming 2007 dance was not held this year due to many complaints of its location. Since Mann students are moving to their new school at the end of Christmas break, the administration decided to have the dance in the school's cafeteria. The dance in previous years had been held at McAllister's Square near Downtown Greenville. The main reason, given by the administration, to have the dance in the cafeteria came from the theme of "Save The Last Dance At The Old Mann." They wanted to celebrate the old school before going to the new school. This, however, did not sit well with many students. Only seven tickets were sold throughout the four days of Homecoming for the dance. It was then canceled completely before the actually date of the dance.The original reason for the cancellation was due to 'bad weather' as reported on Thursday's announcements. The dance and game were held the next day of Friday due to a teacher workday. The game went on as planned despite the supposed the 'bad weather' cover up of the dance. The 'Old Mann' theme for this year's Homecoming Dance was a cover up as well due to last year's Homecoming Dance events, which occur everywhere else, even at birthday parties and cruises. The decision to move the dance from McAllister's Square to the cafeteria was thoughtless and a failure. Hopefully next year will be better for the 2009 seniors. Student Council worked very hard to change the fact, but are highly commended by the students and teachers for their hard work.
I am personally proud that Miss Brienna Jones won Homecoming Queen at Mann this year. She is an amazing young woman with much to offer our school. She has gone far to reach her goals and I wish her the best as this year's Homecoming Queen.
That's a Homecoming 2007 wrap up for now. Hope all is well with every1.
Have a good one,
