Student, Cole Camp High School, Class of 2017,
All extracurricular activities are important at Cole Camp, but the three most popular and the three I would recommend would have to be volleyball, football, and FFA. The C team, Junior Varsity, and Varsity volleyball teams have all been extremely successful in my three years at Cole Camp High School. The volleyball program has a 'big bird/little bird' system where upperclassmen act as a big sister to underclassmen on and off the court, in areas such as tutoring, mentoring in practice, or showing them around the school to each class. The Varsity team has been one game away from making it to State for the past three years, and the support system of the Blue Crew (student section) at every game helps motivate us to keep reaching up until we meet our goal of state champions. The football team is a popular extracurricular activity because it teaches brotherhood, hardwork, and responsibility. Volleyball and football both begin conditioning and practices every day in the summer time. Dedication is key in each of these sports, something Cole Camp students possess well. Friday Night Lights are one of the most talked about events during the fall, and the whole entire town and student body comes out to support our boys in blue. FFA (Future Farmers of America) is a popular activity at school because being in a small agriculture-based town, it helps develop skills and explain the importance of farmers in our every day life. A variety of classes are offered, from basic Ag 1 and 2, to Ag Construction, as well as a college course of Agribusiness, as well as a class strictly based on working with your SAE (supervised agricultural experience). The FFA Chapter hosts a businessmen's breakfast and labor auction where the highest bidder of each students is allowed to have 8 hours of any type of work out of the students, from babysitting to building fence. This helps get the students out in the community to learn that even the smallest job plays a part in maintaining our town.
