GPS and McCallie Upper School students joined together Saturday in the first Student Council outdoor dance, and together they raised $1,750 for Airlift Hope, a non-profit that serves patients in need and their families. The organization provides air transport to specialized medical facilities for evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. 

Senior Megan Rohn, a class representative to the Student Council and a licensed pilot, was the brainchild behind “Destination Dance.” GPS junior Carly Bourne won a ride in a Cessna airplane in a raffle of best-dressed attendees.

The theme was mirrored in the clothing. Students in flight attendant uniforms, Hawaiian shirts, French berets, togas, Indian saris, Mexican serape blankets, danced on the front lawn, a first for an evening coordinate activity.  

Refreshments were served on the DeFoor Patio, under strings of lights and next to large cardboard replicas of the British red telephone box/booth, a hot air balloon, and a cruise ship.

Roy Exum: Quick! Arm Our Guards

When I learned last Wednesday that Chattanooga’s leading hospital, in a ridiculous attempt to be more “family friendly,” planned to disarm its security guards. I was aghast but decided to wait for the proper “incident” to illustrate how stupid members of our “free thought society” can sometimes be. It took exactly one week. A bit after midnight on Thursday morning a gunman appeared ... (click for more)
