The Lanier Way
On Feb 4th, Dr. Bradley had a vision to invite the elementary feeder pattern school to Lanier High School to show them the “Lanier Way” in honor of Dr. Seuss.
On March 3rd, the Lanier High School Student Government Association, under the leadership of Mrs. Miketa Davis- Smith, brought Dr. Bradley vision alive.
The feeder pattern elementary schools (Dawson, Smith, Johnson, Galloway, and Walton) arrived at Lanier High School and they were entertained through music by the Lanier High School band, drill team, cheer team, and flag team. They were engaged with literary story time, arts and crafts, and an obstacle course. Before departing back to their home school, the students received treats (cake, cupcakes, Dr. Seuss Jello, and Dr. Seuss trail mix.) Each student also received a book mark and pencil.
We thoroughly enjoyed this activity and will make it a yearly event.

Lanier’s UMMC Teen Wellness Clinic
The last home game of the season was celebrated by honoring breast cancer survivors in the community. They were given tours of the building by academy ambassadors to see the health academy activities, the teachers and staff decorated doors, and student art. Afterwards they were really given the royal treatment. All the events in the pep rally were done to commemorate and honor them. The choir sang, the band played and the crowds cheered. It was a very special occasion.
“We always take opportunities to support the health academy and Lanier students in fun and educational ways.”
