Fourth of July  Fourth of July
Granbury ISD will take center stage at the community Fourth of July celebration set for July 3-5, 2015, according to announcements by the Granbury Chamber of Commerce.
GISD will serve as the Grand Marshal of the Hometown Parade with the theme “Granbury’s Old Fashioned 4th of July.” In addition, Granbury High School junior Nicole Kallemeyn designed the winning entry in the celebration’s t-shirt competition.
GISD is a top performing school district with numerous academic achievements and distinctions through Project Based Learning, innovative career and technical education programs, and exemplary fine arts and motivating athletics programs. The latest bond initiative provides for a transformation of the high school campus, enhancement of CTE and fine arts programs, upgrades and additions to the security on all campuses, and other improvements. One of the many highlights of the 2014-15 school year was the international competition of their very own Affinity F1 in Schools team at world finals at Abu Dhabi.
“The Grand Marshal provides a way to honor those who have made extraordinary contributions to the betterment of Granbury and Hood County,” said chamber president and CEO Mike Scott. “GISD provides a rigorous academic curriculum and an amazing array of individualized opportunities for student success in an ever-changing world.”
Kallemeyn has been involved with art even before taking here first class in the seventh grade. She is a life-long resident of Granbury and has competed in numerous art shows, winning several awards including Grand Champion honors at the Star-Telegram Stock Show Art Show earlier this year. Following her graduation from GHS in 2016, Kallemeyn plans to study art at the University of Texas at Austin and continue studies aboard. She is pictured above with GHS art teacher Mike Tabor (left) and Scott.
The parade will step off on the July 4 at 10:00 A.M. from GHS. Parade entries must incorporate the theme into their float design. Judged entries will compete in the following categories: Best of Parade, Best Float, Grand Marshal’s Award, Best Commercial, and Best Community. Parade entries will be accepted until June 15 by the chamber.
