United in Grief, United in Hope Schools unite by wearing white at Friday’s Game

On Friday November 10, attendees of the District 29-5A Floresville HS v. Southside HS Varsity football game  are asked to wear white in honor and in memory of those lost or injured due to the shooting in Sutherland Springs, TX, Sunday, November 5th.

Floresville ISD and Southside ISD superintendents are asking for everyone to spread the message of hope to all who will be attending the last district varsity football game of the season.  The schools are tied for first place in the district 29-5A championship, but the competition between the schools will be met with unity, solidarity, grief and love when the schools unite on Friday.

Floresville Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Sherri Bays, shared her appreciation of support coming in for the students, families and communities affected. “As we move forward with our children in the days to come, it is comforting to see and feel the support that surrounds us. Standing together strengthens us. The attendance and spirit of love means more to us than you may ever know.”

Southside Superintendent Mark E. Eads says, “It is in times like these that it is important we all stand together in the face of evil acts. Our children always come first. Southside is here to support our sister schools in whatever way we can. Our hearts and prayers are with Floresville and all the other districts affected.”

The color white is one of peace and love. We hope to spread the message with this effort so that all communities can heal and find comfort during this time of tragedy.
