The Grant County Middle School staff and students filled the gym for the annual GCMS Hillbilly Hoe-down. The first dance of the middle school year featured the crowning of the grade level ‘Opossum Kings and Queens: Eighth Grade – Ethan Howe and Mason McClure, Seventh Grade – Ethan Dalzell and Lexie Stall, and Sixth Grade – Peyton Hudson and Josie Browning. Student winners were elected by their respective grade level classmates.
The dance ended with the crowning of the teacher ‘Opossum Kings and Queens. Teachers competed in a penny drive for the title where pennies and bills counted as votes for the teacher and silver money took away votes. All proceeds from the penny drive are used to purchase gifts for needy Grant County families during the holidays.
