LAURINBURG — Pieces of Scotland High School history, Fighting Scot Marching Band uniforms used as early as 1950 and retired in the 1990s, are being sold for $12 as a fundraiser for the school’s marching band. The pieces of retired tartan are meant to be shaken and waved during Scotland County High School football games.
Greg Batten, principal of Scotland High School, Beachum McDougald and Laurinburg Police Chief Darwin Williams have also been presented with squares of uniform material.
Squares can be purchased at Harley’s Tuxedo & Gifts or at a football game. Proceeds will benefit the Scotland High School marching band. Those with a square are asked to wave and shake it during football games.
There will also be a contest to name a school square. Suggestions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or submitted through a box at Harley’s Tuxedo through Oct. 14. The winning submission will be announced at Scotland High School’s Oct. 18 home game against Pincecrest.
The project was approved by Goodwin and Batten.
