The Hixson High School Alumni Association will be hosting their annual homecoming tailgate cookout this Friday from 5:30-7 p.m. All alumni, current and former faculty are invited to attend.
Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and soft drinks will be served.
"The meal is free, but we welcome donations to the scholarship fund. This year our tailgate is in honor of the Class of 1968 who just celebrated with their 50th reunion," officials said. "The association was formed several years ago to establish a scholarship program and assist the school financially. Each year a scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior. In 2018, the association awarded two scholarships and hosted a senior class breakfast in the spring.
"Meet us Friday night in front of the school to visit with friends and teachers. End the evening by joining friends at the football game as the Wildcats face the Red Bank Lions. We hope to see you there."
