The Hixson High School Alumni Association is hosting a tailgate party before the football game on Friday, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The event is free to all Hixson Alumni.
Organizers said, "We will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, providing chips, soft drinks and water to those attending.
Our goal is to raise awareness of the mission of the association and show our support for the students, athletes, faculty and administrators."
The association started the Centennial Alumni Scholarship in 2009. Each year one student is awarded a $1000 scholarship to further their education. The students must submit an application and are interviewed by members of the association prior to final selection of the scholarship recipient.
The association would like to expand and provide additional support to the school and the students through funding of equipment or other needs identified by the school.
