When was the last time you attended a local high school activity? Since your child graduated? Since the last state title? Since, well…… never? Why not? It’s great entertainment, tickets are cheap, you don’t spend much for gas, you’ll see your friends there and the kids really appreciate it! Community pride is easy to show if you just get off the couch! Make it a priority to support YOUR local school activities! I’ve found over the years of covering high school sports and activities that the number of participants seems to be directly related to the number of spectators. If we show that we care, the kids will too!
