Warriors Win the State Title!

Award Ceremony at the State Finals
We are so proud of the Magna Vista Football team for winning the state title this year.  The team displayed great determination and dedication throughout the season.  In addition, these young men exhibited model sportsmanship.

HCPS Principals and Administrators Cheering for Warriors
I was also impressed with the support the team received from the community.  Several folks came out to cheer on the Warriors as they headed to Liberty University for the final.  In addition, the Town of Ridgeway sponsored a parade in order to recognize the Warriors for their accomplishment.  As the superintendent for HCPS, I was honored to celebrate with Coach Favero, the Warrior Football Team, and the community.   These students have certainly brought pride to Magna Vista High School, Henry County Public Schools and Henry County. In addition, these young men have learned powerful lessons that extend beyond the football field.  As I watched them play throughout the season, the players displayed such skills as leadership, teamwork, and a strong work ethic.  All of these skills will serve them well in sports and in life!  Congratulations, Warriors!  We are proud of your accomplishment.
