To most it’s just a stick with a few feathers, but to students at CHS, the spirit stick is so much more. Given out every pep rally to the loudest class, it has certainly led to a much heated contest each week between the students.

Junior, Emily Tindol, along with the entire junior class prepares and collaborates all week long before Friday when the battle of the classes commences.

“The spirit stick is not just a little competition to the juniors,” Tindol said. “We spend numerous hours prepping in order to succeed. I believe the stick teaches us a lot about life. We learn to work as a team, and compete as one. Our class has definitely grown closer and the stick has helped create memories that will last a lifetime. I expect the following classes to have the same pride and continue the legacy to keep the fire burning.”

Principal Vinson Pierce brought the spirit stick back to Comanche this year to ignite a passion in students with pride for their school.

“I think that our students here at CHS have always had spirit, but they needed a reason to show it,” Pierce said. “Kids at Comanche will compete, and they have shown that through the spirit stick. The students are doing a fantastic job coming together not only as a class but as a school, supporting all aspects that CHS is involved in.”

The seniors have definitely been competitive in the spirit stick competition each week as they have won the contest in all but two of the weeks of competition.

“The spirit stick means victory,” senior Gabby Sanchez said. “The spirit stick is a battle between the classes and a lot of fun. We are a very competitive class; when we all come together for a common goal, we can be hard to beat.”

The spirit stick has brought fun competition and joy to many students. Students have said that preparing for the pep-rally is almost as fun as the pep-rally itself due to the bonds they have made with their fellow classmates. Spirit has without a doubt come back to CHS.
