There’s a new Buzz in town

For years, there has been discussion of a new mascot for Thomas County Central High School, and it has finally happened. “I’ve had people asking about what happened to our old mascot for years, but it was always a time where it was either too late or just a bad time to try to put it together,” Randy Young, Broadcasting teacher at TCCHS said. “This time the timing was right and I contacted the boosters who wanted to see it become a reality.”

Accent on Academics


Dual enrollment students taking Physical Science through Bainbridge State College recently completed a lab that culminated in launching their own handmade rockets. “It is a good ‘hands on’ lab,” BSC instructor Dr. Juan Gomez said. “The students build their own rockets and get to see if they actually fly.” Senior Zack Johnson found the experience “thrilling” and said this lab was “definitely a lot more fun” than his previous experience with rocket-building in eighth grade. “We learned how to use the free fall equation to estimate the height of the rocket: y=1/2gt2,” Johnson said. Gomez said the lab involved “a lot of physics”: conservation of energy, free fall equations and Newton’s Third Law. “Particularly, they used the free fall equation, y=1/2gt2, to estimate the height to which their rocket flew,” he said.

Wilhelm receives Wendy's High School Heisman recognition

Senior Conley Wilhelm was named as the Thomas County Central High School winner in the Wendy’s High School Heisman competition. Wilhelm, though not selected as a state finalist, is happy to have earned the recognition.

“I am happy to be named as our high school’s winner,” Wilhelm said. “It is something nice to put on a college application, and it was really nice to get recognition for being a student athlete.”

The Wendy’s High School Heisman, according to its official website, honors “the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors.” It is an award that honors excellence, dedication and achievement in learning and leadership in the classroom, on the field, and within the community.

“To apply, you had to have at least a 3.0 (GPA) and participate in a varsity sport,” Wilhelm explained. “I had to fill out an online application that involved questions about sports, education, and community service.”

Coach Bill Wilhelm, Conley’s father and a teacher/coach at TCCHS, is proud of his son’s accomplishments, both as a student and an athlete.

“Conley has been involved in five sports every year of his high school career,” Bill Wilhelm said. “To keep at least a 3.0 and to letter in five varsity sports is unbelievable.”

As a school winner, Conley will receive a certificate and a Wendy’s High School Heisman patch for his letterman jacket.

“We are always pleased when our students are successful both in and out of the classroom,” TCCHS Principal Trista Jones said. “Conley has certainly made the most of his years here at TCCHS, playing multiple sports and excelling academically. We are proud of his accomplishments.”
