At the HS we are currently working on setting up a new Cornjerker Spirit Store to be ran during school starting 2nd semester. In order to make room for this exciting new project, spring cleaning had to start early and we are having to remove all of the old VHS tapes from years past out to clear room. We have VHS tapes, mini cassette tapes, and even a few DVDs from school functions and events spanning over many years. Before we discard these to make room for our new spirit store, we wanted to first offer them to the public. Tapes we have found include graduations, sweetheart dinners, concerts, sporting events, etc. from the last 30+ years. If you or anyone you know would have interest in any of these tapes, please set up an appointment at the high school to go through them. This will be open to the public until Thursday December 20th. After that the remaining videos will be disposed of.
