2012: Congratulations to HALIFAX ACADEMY!!

By Fox 50 Staff

The FOX 50 'Lip Dub' crew was at it again.

The check and trophy presentation road trip continued Tuesday May 22nd with a stop in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina.  

Halifax Academy was presented with a $5,000 check which Headmaster Mr. Glenn Wiggs said would be used for gym renovations. Despite the students lobbying for an "exam exception" Principal Wiggs expressed his extreme pride in their efforts, and promised a pizza party. The students were elated and began to suggest a popular yogurt spot in town as well.

On the day of filming, senior, T.J. Myrick wasn't worried that the cameras weren't in place. He just whipped out his Droid Bionic smart phone and the class shot three takes. The first take ended up being the winner and the class of 2012 will take this experience with them as they graduate and go on to college. Headmaster Wiggs noted with a smile that this, was the only time, cell phones were allowed during school.
