Basketall Homecoming 2017

The Bruins and Lady Bruins basketball teams wrapped up another successful Homecoming Week at the end of January. The week’s festivities included basketball tournaments throughout the week, with each class selecting four boys and four girls to make up their teams. During lunch, the seniors played the sophomores and the juniors played the freshmen. The winner of each game played each other, with the winner of that game challenging the faculty team. Faculty won!


The Bid & Boogie

The music of Dr. Zarr’s Amazing Funk Monster brought everyone to their feet at The Bid & Boogie on Saturday, January 28 at The STAR Center. The evening featured live and silent auctions.

Guests enjoyed a cocktail buffet by Coyote Blues and Rock’n Dough and lighting decor from TB Lighting. Forty West Designs’ Whitney Overton provided the lounge seating.

“I would like to thank all of our auction donors, our corporate and table sponsors, and everyone who joined us for a fabulous night to benefit USJ,” said Cathy Garrett, assistant director of development.

The Bid & Boogie was sponsored in part by West Tennessee ENT Clinic P.A./Dr. and Mrs. Karl Studtmann. All proceeds benefited the University School of Jackson.
