Floyd County Schools and Darlington School –
(Via Floyd County Schools) “Tonight at 8:20 p.m. (2020 military time), Floyd County high schools will join the national “Be the Light” campaign. Armuchee High, Coosa High, Model High, and Pepperell High will turn on the stadium lights at their respective football stadiums. The lights will stay on for 20 minutes, honoring the Class of 2020. This will take place every Friday evening through May 22, 2020.
Please feel free to drive by, observe, and honk your horn for the Class of 2020! Please do NOT stop or get out of your vehicle, in order to remain in compliance with the Governor’s orders for social distancing and grouping.
Even if you cannot make it by the stadium, turn on your house lights at 8:20 p.m. in recognition of the Class of 2020!
We admire the strength of this senior class, and we will get through this together!”
(Via Darlington School) “If you drive by Chris Hunter Stadium in the coming nights, you may wonder why the stadium lights are on. Darlington School is joining the nationwide “Be the Light” movement, where schools are lighting up their stadiums at 8:20 p.m. (20:20 in military time) with community members encouraged to also turn on their front porch lights to join the tribute to the senior class.
From April 17 through May 1, Darlington will be celebrating the 115 members of Darlington’s Class of 2020, not only with a lit stadium but also on the school’s video scoreboard. For 115 minutes, the seniors will be honored with their names shown during the first week and their senior pictures throughout the second week.
Please understand that campus remains closed and we are all working hard to follow social distancing protocols. We are working on a plan to allow visitors; in the meantime, you are welcome to view the screen from your vehicle in the Huffman Center parking lot.
The Darlington Community is also encouraged to show the Class of 2020 just how loved they are by wearing PURPLE on Monday April 20, 2020.”
