Make plans now to attend the RRHS Homecoming 2023 on Friday, September 29! We will be playing Northern Nash. There will be a pre-game tailgating party at the Girl Scout Hut sponsored by the Sports Club. BBQ and chicken plates $10 ready at 5:30! See any Sports Club member or call RRHS for ticket information.

Honoring Past JV and Varsity Cheerleaders

“Once a Jacket, Always a Jacket” is especially true if you were a cheerleader! This year former RRHS cheerleaders will be recognized pre-game on Friday, September 29. Make plans now to meet in the RRHS media center for a reception at 5:30 pm, line up to take the field at 6:30 pm, game starts at 7:00 pm.

T-shirts can be ordered and picked up prior to that date for $16 with Randy Wrenn at Wrenn Sports Graphics, M-F 10-3. (10 East 11th Street, phone 252-673-5491)

In 2022, former football players were honored, and in 2021 former homecoming queens were honored. The plan in 2024 is to recognize former band members. Let’s keep the faithful and true-hearted spirit alive for all RRHS alumni and friends to reunite and support our old high school every year!

After the Game

Once again, there will be a fireworks show sponsored by Michael Dunlow with Oscars Restaurant and Big Time Pawn. Plan to hang around after the game and watch the show centered at the old Patterson Mill site behind the high school. Many thanks to Michael for his support, and to the local fire departments for managing the logistics of the show!
