Loved Ones Remembered
submitted by Justin Prindle and Leah Stagnone, Campbell High School Student Council On the morning of Thursday, December 23, students and faculty came together to celebrate the holidays and remember loved ones at the 11th annual Campbell High School Tree Lighting Ceremony. At the ceremony, both the Campbell High School Band and Chorus gave excellent renditions of timeless holiday classics. The Campbell High School Student Council led the community in two sing-alongs; &#x201C;Jingle Bells&#x201D; and &#x201C;Let it Snow.&#x201D; Four members of the student council read the names of individuals who are being both honored and remembered this holiday season. One student said, &#x201C;It meant a lot to me to hear the name of my grandfather and remember all the great times we had together during the holidays.&#x201D; Santa Claus made an appearance on stage and presented several gifts to the administration. This ceremony was an exceptional way to begin our holiday season, and is a Campbell tradition that will be as timeless as Santa himself.
