Westside’s “Seminole Spirit” racing team participated in the 2017 Gravity Racing Challenge, and continued a winning tradition by placing 4th in a field of 17 high schools and student organizations! Now in its third year, the high school division included teams from Bibb, Bleckley, Crawford, Dodge, Jones, Laurens, Monroe and Twiggs counties, with 17 teams and more than 250 students participating. Westside has so many people to THANK for their help and support, including: CarStar owner Walter Lee for another stunning paint job; the B.O.L.D. crew from Middle GA State for mechanical advisement and transportation; Freshman Deontae Jones and Senior Danielle Tate for particularly enthusiastic participation; and of course, the event would not have been possible without planning and scheduling by Mr. Ed Bujak – our Lead Engineering Teacher. Another example of Seminole Success!!!
