To help elevate school spirit, Athletic Director Tom Nelson is seeking input following the pep rally on Wednesday, January 24.

The rally, which set the stage for a varsity basketball doubleheader, featured a hype video and free swag giveaways.

By seeking feedback from community members, Nelson said that he is determined to sustain the event’s energy throughout the spring.

“We’re going to just keep working,” Nelson said. “We need to find a way to keep people more pumped up throughout the day.”

Nelson also hinted at “surprise” upcoming initiatives to foster a spirited atmosphere.

To enhance excitement around Homecoming, Sebastian Demeter ’25 proposed adding an evening element to the event.

Nelson remains open to feedback.

“If we can move things forward, that’s what we’re going to do,” Nelson said.
