The first 1,000 fans through the gates at Zizzer Stadium for the Zizzer Homecoming football game against the Parkview Vikings, of Springfield, will receive a free T-shirt provided by West Plains Bank and Trust Company.
The bank recently enlisted the talents of the South Central Career Center Creative (SCCC) Design Classes, under the direction of Scott Heidy, to come up with a design for the 2019 homecoming T-shirts.
The design chosen was created by Heidy and has been printed on 1,000 T-shirts. Students in Heidy’s Creative Design Class have received a check for $100 to use however they wish. In addition, the students were treated to a donut party provided by the bank.
According to West Plains Bank and Trust Company President and Chief Operating Officer David M. Gohn, the annual contest has become a tradition and is intended to boost spirit during homecoming week by drawing attention to the design talents of the students.
“Just as in years past, we’ll be under the purple tent near the front gate of Zizzer Stadium this Friday night,” he said. “We are looking forward to defending our home turf in a great game against the Vikings and encourage everyone to arrive early to get a shirt.”
