The board also recognized the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Bobby Haddock as a platinum Washington County Business Partner Sponsor, and Tyndall Credit Union as a silver sponsor.

“Over the past three years, Sheriff Haddock has donated $2,500 to the schools,” Cook said. Tyndall Credit Union has donated $750 over the past two years, she added. “This type of support is wonderful, and we really appreciate all our sponsors do for our schools.”

Chipley High School Principal Steve Griffin gave a school update, including telling the board about the high school’s new website where clubs, sports and organizations have links. “It is not complete, but we are excited about what it will offer to the CHS nation,” he said.

Griffin also noted that the “Spirit of the Tiger” Marching Band recently earned straight “superior” ratings at the Florida Bandmasters Association District 2 Assessment, making this the 20th consecutive year the band has earned a superior at District Marching Assessment.

CHS will be represented by two band students selected for the Tri-State Honor Band held in Tallahassee in December, and has two other band students named to the Florida All-State Band that will be performing in January in Tampa.

Also, Chipley Band parents have accrued 970 volunteer hours so far this school year, Griffin said. Of all the students at CHS, 33 percent of them participate in a CHS performing fine arts group — band, chorus or theater.
