My Students

Twiggs County High school is located at the geographical center point of Georgia. Twiggs County High School serves roughly 270 students in grades 9-12. The student to teacher ratio is 15:1, which is lower than the State of Georgia average of 16:1. Minority enrollments are at 71 percent of students, which is more than the state average of 58 percent. Twiggs County High School operates within the Twiggs County School District. With a Graduation rate of 55 percent, which is lower than the state of Georgia average of 69 percent, the student population has stayed flat for over five years; but the teacher population of 18 has declined by 28 percent.

My Project

Acquiring these compression shirts will give these young men a sense of uniformity to play as a team. When you feel apart of a team, you play better which ultimately bring success to the program. As a Title I school, with past season's not being these boys best. I am wanting to bring the PRIDE back to this team in hopes of a victorious season. These boys have faced so much adversity over the past four years with different coaches coming and leaving. I have returned home to coach a team, I once had the pleasure of playing for. The thing I remembered in my experience was the football team feeling like a family. To be winners, we must look like winners to play like winners!
