MEXICO – Tigers are known for their size, strength and skill.
Each one has different, beautiful stripes. Together, tigers are a powerful force.
Throughout the Mexico Academy and Central School District, that rings true on the court, field, classroom, throughout all buildings and even within the greater Mexico community.
Hundreds of Mexico High School students recently showed off much of their Tiger Pride by wearing their “Block M” T-shirts to school, alongside some staff members, ahead of a blackout basketball game.
Principal Ryan Lanigan commended each participant for bleeding orange and black, the school colors that will forever be engrained in their lives.
Coming together in a show of strength as a school community is something that Lanigan said he was ecstatic to be a part of in the school gymnasium.
He then led the group in a “Go Tigers!” cheer to pump them up for their school day.
Getting teachers, support staff members, administrators and students in grades nine through 12 in the same room, supporting the same cause and each other will occur more often throughout the remainder of the 2017-18 school year, he said.
