When it comes to our member schools, the MHSAA likes to talk about "we" and "us".
Though passionate about our school teams and programs, and competitors on the field aside, there is and always should be a bond between our schools.
We saw a great example of our schools pitching in to help one another this week after an early morning fire destroyed the Purvis High School fieldhouse and the entirety of its contents. With assistance and efforts of other schools, businesses, sporting goods companies, and private citizens, Purvis High School will be able to play their Friday night's football home opener against North Forrest High School...... just six days after the devastating fire. This sort of generosity is a terrific example of the very best of what high school sports and activities bring to Mississippi: People from all walks of life pulling together for the greater good.
