Friday was full of excitement as Willow Bend Elementary concluded their Celebrate College Week on campus. They had crazy hair day, crazy sock day and finally Friday was wear Red and Black to get students excited about Texas Tech University that is right here in our own back yard. As part of the No Excuses University initiative Willow Bend is continuously educating its students about all the possibilities available to them through college.
The staff at Willow Bend worked closely with Texas Tech University to have the Masked Rider and Fearless Champion, the Saddle Tramps, members of the Texas Tech Cheerleading Squad, members of the Goin’ Band from Raiderland and of course Raider Red present at the campus for a fun pep rally to wrap up college week.
Students were treated to the band performing, the cheerleaders leading exciting chants and Raider Red getting everyone pumped about what college has to offer. The students received a firsthand experience of what it means to be a Red Raider!
