Daleville’s Class of 1994 will be recognized during the game. The Student Council will also honor teachers who have been at Daleville Community Schools for over 20 years: Frank Barkdull, David Beard, Kim Beard, Rob Curry, Diane Evans, Paul Garrison, Ann Heintzelman, Sandy Hird, Pat Keogh, Rod Knotts, Ilene Kuhl, Janet Northcutt, Lisa Oakes, David Parkison, Jeff Phillips, Susie Reed and Vickie Rees.

After the basketball game, a dance will be held in the cafetorium. Tickets will be available at the door.
