Celebrating On and Off the Field On Thursday Night Lights

The football game on Thursday, September 6 was much more than an athletic event. It was the CJ community gathering together to highlight athletes, students and the school’s impact in downtown Dayton.

Preparation for the main event, featuring the Eagles versus the Greenville Green Wave, began before the sun was up. Football players, cheerleaders, and members of Eagle Pride pumped up viewers on FOX 45’s morning show.

“The FOX 45 team was outstanding getting our students excited and fans too,” said Kary Ellen Berger, CJ communications coordinator.
