College Park High School Leadership
College Park High School’s Associated Student Body [ASB] Leadership has taken the norms of a typical high school rally to greater heights by presenting the school’s first ever outdoor rally on their brand new field. This year’s spectacular Homecoming rally was only the second outdoor rally ASB Leadership has ever done. The rally consisted of an exciting teacher versus student dance-off, several student led performances, such as the a capella club, urban dance, cheerleaders, football players, and an enthusiastic student audience that captured the genuine spirit and love for CPHS. With the help of campus administration and the cooperation of both staff members and students, Leadership was able to present a Homecoming week that blew both teachers and students away. After overcoming many obstacles in the planning process, the results were unfathomable and currently known as “one of the best Homecomings we’ve ever had.”
In addition to the rally, ASB Leadership put on a successful pre-game tailgate with a variety of cultural foods sold by clubs, music, and positivity all around. Although this was our second pre-game tailgate, this year’s results were absolutely phenomenal. Following the tailgate later that evening was a victorious Homecoming game against Northgate, with active student participation and spirit we have never seen before. The following evening was our Homecoming dance, which was definitely one for the books. This year, over 800 students bought tickets to the dance, a stupendous leap from prior years, and it was a night that every student will surely remember.College Park High’s ASB Leadership puts the courage, pride, honor, and sacrifice in CPHS, and we hope to continue bringing positive change to our campus for the benefit of all students, staff, and the community. With the help of our peers, Leadership has been able to accomplish amazing things within the second month of school, and we hope to continue moving forward throughout the year.
