McCollum and Harlandale celebrate friendship before Frontier Bowl
Posted on 11/09/2018

Administrators, counselors, teachers and students from McCollum HS and Harlandale HS came together to celebrate a night of camaraderie and fun during the traditional “Round Up” event on Nov. 8.

The annual event is hosted in alternate years by each school (Harlandale HS’s is called “Pow Wow”) in an effort to promote friendship between the two rival schools prior to the annual Frontier Bowl football game.

The tradition was created by the school’s Student Councils to encourage a genuine feeling of goodwill that can be carried on throughout the year between the two neighboring schools.

The night kicked off with the McCollum HS JROTC’s presentation of colors, which was followed by McCollum HS Senior Class President Bryanna Rich singing the national anthem.

All the guests enjoyed a delicious dinner prepared by McCollum HS culinary arts students while cheerleading and dance teams performed entertaining routines, which built the excitement before the big game.

HHS Student Council President Desiree Valdez delivered the ceremony’s closing remark.

“As we anticipate the game, we must remember that at the end of it all, we are all a part of one big family,” Desiree said. “HISD is so special because no matter what is going on, rivalry game included, we can still come together and enjoy a beautiful night. Harlandale and McCollum, we thank you for continuing this tradition. Good luck to everyone, go Cowboys and go Indians!”

The 55th annual Frontier Bowl football game will take place today at Memorial Stadium at 7:30 p.m.

Good luck to both teams!
