Congratulations to Bruce Latsch as our first ever Pilot of the Pit. This honor is for a student that demonstrates the Rocket Way as a spectator at RP events. Our student leadership group describes that "Bruce brought the spirit and energy to every football game so far this year. He shows up each game, dressed to impress with the theme of the week. You can probably see Bruce running back and forth in front of the student section, giving high fives and starting “the wave”. Keep an eye out for our first ever Pilot in The Pit this week and try to match his energy!" Bruce received the honor of the astronaut helmet and certificate this week which will get handed off to a new student next week for showing school spirit with respect, pride, and integrity. Pilot of the Pit was an idea created by students and executed by students. We can't wait to see their idea "take off". Our students make Rocket City a pretty special place to be! Congrats again Bruce.
