Ms. Melissa Sims
I am a proud alumnus-- second generation Lion-- raising two future Lions. I attended Houston County High School first through twelfth grades serving as salutatorian for both sixth and twelfth grades. I have lived in the Columbia area for 42 years. I have worked at Houston County High School for 15 years. I teach junior and senior English, as well as serve as yearbook sponsor, scholar's bowl coach, website facilitator and senior sponsor. I look forward to many more years here at HCHS! ROAR LIONS!!
We will have homeroom next week, on Tuesday. I plan to have you vote on senior superlatives at this time. The categories this year will be: Most Likely to Succeed, Most Dependable, Most Athletic, Most School Spirit, Most Talented (NOT the same as athletic), and the most important, Mr. and Miss HCHS. This is not a "campaign" type activity. The classmates you vote for should immediately rush to mind whenever you see the category. As far as Mr. and Miss HCHS, these classmates MUST exemplify a positive reflection on the school. They cannot be behavior problems either at school or in the community. The must be personifications of strong moral character.
This voting will be postponed until next week. (Homecoming Week)
