ECHS Athletic Director Brad Smith shakes the hand of an incoming freshman Thursday night during the school’s annual open house. Staff members said afterwards it was one of the largest turnouts in recent memory.
“Can I just say WOW! What a turn out!,” said Principal Jeremiah Johnson to his staff later in the evening. “As I made my rounds through the school and visiting classes, you could feel the energy and excitement for a new year! I heard many positive comments from the parents, students, and staff about tonight.
“Thanks to everyone for your commitment to our students, parents, community and school and tonight was another shining example of why I am proud to be a GATOR!”
