For junior Erick Hannahs, Friday, Sept. 8, was a morning to look forward to.

No, he wasn’t excited about his Link Crew class, he was excited about WZZM’s first-ever “Sunrise on Your Sidelines” event.

“It was a real adrenaline rush, and it really got me going early in the morning,” Hannahs said. “When I got there, I was super sleepy, but I grabbed a donut and grabbed the big megaphone and my day got going.”

The event was coordinated with Shores’ “Sailor Salute,” which is a recognition football game for all servicemen and women.

It was a positive start to administrators, teachers, and students last day of the first week of school; the 6 a.m. event also got students excited for the first home football game that evening.

The early-morning pep assembly included cheerleaders, representatives from many sports and clubs, a pumped-up student body, and a captivating pie-eating contest.

The event was put together by Principal Jennifer Bustard, former Sailor Brent Ashcroft (WZZM 13’s “storyteller”) and journalist Kamady Rudd, but the event was pulled together with the help of the students and the JV and varsity cheer teams.
“We are known for our PRIDE, athletics, arts, and academics,” Bustard said. “(‘Sunrise on Your Sidelines’) was the perfect start to a perfect day.”

The morning started with a rowdy student section and a peppy cheer team. Hannahs, along with many others, helped get the students going.

Sophomore Maddie Mills said, “It was way more exciting than most football games.”

The morning ended with a pie-eating contest between assistant principal Joe Schaffer, social studies teacher Kyle

Mireles, and middle school social studies teacher Alex Parr, who came up on top.

“It was just a really great experience, and I was really happy to be there,” Hannahs said.
