WHS Silverline Lends Hand at Stock Show

CC Winn High School's Silverline Dance Team recently lent a helping hand at the 2018 Maverick County Junior Livestock Show.
On Tuesday, Janaury 23rd, the girls picked up trash and retrieved drink refills for the visitors at the Annual Cowboy Breakfast! 
However, this is not where their service ended!
On Saturday, January 27th, Silverline worked at the concession stand, buyers' ring, and plate sale at the stock show.
Some girls made and served food at the concession stand, others plated and served the buyers for the sale, and the last group assembled plates for the delicious brisket plate sale.
Helping out at the stock show has been a tradition for Silverline for the past 4 years and they always try to help wherever they are needed!
In fact this year, some girls worked all the way from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm!
Silverline would also like to congratulate their very own Freshman, Ximena Galvan, for being named 2018 Miss Teen MCJLS Queen!
What a great group of giving gals!
Go Silverline!
