Honoring & Respecting Other Schools

At last week’s Lexington-Holdrege football tailgate at Lexington High School, Holdrege presented to Lexington a student/staff-signed banner, welcoming Lexington to the Central Conference.  Students and community members ate together and talked at the United Way Tailgate prior to the game and then Lexington and Holdrege students and administrators met at mid-field prior the kickoff where Holdrege officially presented the welcome banner to Lexington.

The two schools came up with this plan that will hopefully serve as motivation for many more schools to begin the necessary process of honoring and respecting neighboring schools in light of their diverse social and cultural similarities and differences, beginning with valuable dialogue between students and their schools. Lexington plans to hang the banner at Lexington High School.
