The “Heroes vs. the Hawks” is on the horizon …
At 8 a.m. on Thursday, January 22, volunteers from the Taylor Police and Fire departments will take on the Hoover Middle School seventh and eighth grade boys’ basketball teams during a basketball game/pep assembly in the Hoover gym.
The event will provide the opportunity for the kids to meet and greet Taylor heroes in a small group setting after the game. It also will provide positive role models and potential career paths for the numerous students.
And is it isn’t a bad moral boost for the entire school, either.
Ten firefighters have already volunteered and officials at the school are still waiting on the police volunteers. One of the firemen who has volunteered to play in the game is also being featured in the new Hoover Hall of Fame located in the main hall: Alum Chris Hudson.
The firefighters agreed to bring a fire truck for students to view and ask questions.
