Halls High School students have had a unique opportunity to earn college credit sponsored by Education Equal Opportunity Group (EEOG). Halls High is the first school in the state of Tennessee to participate in this program. Five HHS seniors are taking a college level American Literature class and will earn college credit if they pass an exam at the end of the course. On November 18, 2021, these five students met with Mr. George Thomas, founder of EEOG, and Mr. Craig Fitzhugh, Ripley Mayor. Mr. Thomas and Mr. Fitzhugh spoke with the students about their futures and the opportunities they have as high school students to get ahead in college by participating in this “Freshman Year for Free” program. Mrs. Cynthia Lacy-Janes and Mrs. Briana Henderson are the coordinators at Halls High School and were the ones who selected the students to participate in the program. Students and parents enjoyed a chance to meet with Mr. Thomas and share information and ask questions.
Come Cheer on your HALLS Tigers!

During a season of thanksgiving, LCS is proud to have students like DeePan, Maitri, Mira, and Riley who place others first. Way to exemplify servant leadership!
