HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB) — Friday morning, ABC40 traveled to Holyoke High School, marking our third Honor Roll Live!

Students and staff were ready to celebrate will full energy by 5 a.m

The band, under the direction of Joan Cavanaugh, kicked off the morning with a musical start.

Principal Diane Bauer thanked all who came in early to join the fun, “We don’t start class until 8:15, so I really want to thank them and give them a round of applause for getting in here.”

Many groups, organizations, and teams from within the school community were represented this morning, including the Business club, Drama club, Student Government, Gay Straight Alliance, and Graduation coaches.

“Graduation coaches help prepare them write resumes, prepare for college, help them get jobs,” explains Assistant Principal Stephen Sullivan.

ABC40 was able to paint a full picture of the talented students at Holyoke High.

Colorful artwork wallpapers the building. “We have some super talented kids they bring it every day,” says Art Instructor Darlene Henshaw.

The halls were also filled with music today, of course by the school band, but also by the Madrigal Choir and the Bell Choir, directed by Mark Todd.

Of course, Holyoke High athletes brought the athletic spirit.

“We have been a family all year. We even have a chant where we yell FAMILY at every game,” says Andrew Peltier from the Holyoke Football Team.

There was incredible energy today at Holyoke High School for Honor Roll Live.

Next week, Chicopee Comp. will show us what they are made of!
