Beginning the morning on Saturday, October 5th, I had no idea what tailgating was. Little did I know what I was in for as I got dressed and was driven over to the school. I was bombarded by a host a booths and clubs, and people were milling about everywhere.
There was a photo booth there where you could dress up and take photos.
Girl Unity was there selling beef jerky and promoting their awesome club.
The Lacrosse team was there selling donuts and encouraging people to join the team.
The Good Club was there, hosting a giveaway of Highland merchandise and selling some amazing buttons.
GSA was there selling some awesome shirts and handing out buttons, which I would encourage you to get at your next opportunity.
The African Student Association was there selling some great food. I especially enjoyed the beef sambusa.
Dance Team was there selling some amazing hot cocoa and doing face painting.
HP Environmental was there selling green lemonade.
The Senior Class of 2020 was there selling school spirit tattoos and encouraging seniors to take the pledge to graduate this year, offering bracelets to those who signed.

Youth in Government was there selling donuts and coffee.
Woodworking class was there selling keychains, amazing magnets, and earrings.

Also present, but not pictured, were:
