MHS "Lip Dub" - We are True to our School!

Montgomery High School staff and students have rallied and put together another amazing “lip dub” to start off the 2014-2015 school year. One week prior to the school’s homecoming game, the students showed their spirit for MHS as they sang to the Beach Boys’ Be True to Your School. The MHS Lip Dub will be entered into the Macy’s Back to School Lip Dub Contest where the grand prize winner will take home $25,000. The second place prize award is $15,000, and third place is $10,000. Macy’s mandated the song selection and will judge the entries on creativity, participation, school spirit and execution. Winners will be announced on October 31st.

MHS teacher and lip dub organizer and producer, Jolynda McGrath said, “The kids did an AMAZING job and I couldn’t be prouder! Moving up into the 6A arena we wanted to produce something we could be proud of and we definitely showed our heart and spirit in this year’s production. Many thanks to everyone who made this possible with special recognition to fellow teachers Eric Presley, Jessica Ferrarone, and Chelsea Peverill. We had almost everyone in attendance and it was a team effort from everyone at MHS!”
