McClain meet and greet to celebrate 100 years

A special Meet and Greet will kick off McClain’s three-day centennial celebration over the Labor Day weekend.

The meet and greet will take place on Friday, Sept. 4 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the McClain Cafetorium, located in the vocational building.

The gathering will pay honor to all of McClain’s coaches, team managers, homecoming queens, band directors, cheerleaders, boosters, and anyone else who has played a part in Tiger history.

The casual gathering will provide an opportunity to reconnect and reminisce with coaches, players, teachers, fans, classmates, and friends from decades past and will kick-off a weekend of activities celebrating the 100 years of McClain High School history.

At this time, many of these individuals have been personally contacted and the McClain Centennial Committee received a positive response. Committee members are looking forward to a great turn out and would like to openly invite all former athletes, alumni and fans of Tiger athletics to stop by and join the gathering.

The McClain Centennial Committee has made every attempt to find as many people from McClain’s athletic past as possible. If the committee has inadvertently missed someone, such was not the intent. The event is open to everyone who would like to attend, no fees, and feel free to bring a friend. Centennial committee member encourage people to help spread the word by sharing this information with your family, friends, and classmates.
