Football, volleyball banquet set
Ty Thatcher, athletic director, has scheduled a potluck style banquet Tuesday night for the Dora football and volleyball team members and their parents. The meal will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria. Contact Coach Pablo Pena or Coach Mal Webster for information.
Basketball begins for Dora
On Friday and Saturday, the Dora varsity girls team will travel to Whiteface, Texas, to participate in a tournament. The JV boys will play at the Grady Invitational Tournament, also on Friday and Saturday. The Dora Junior High teams will play at Melrose on Friday, beginning at 4 p.m.
Scholarships require early work
David Bass, principal, urges Dora seniors to prepare early to submit college and scholarship applications. Many applications require letters of recommendation and essays along with transcripts, so waiting until the last minute can be disastrous to meeting deadlines.
