PCHS shows their support

PCHS shows their supportStudents and faculty at Pickett County High School wore orange to show their support of Custodian Glenn "Pig" Parris. Pig is currently in the hospital recovering from a massive stroke and surgery that removed large blood clots from his head.
Pig always wears orange to show his pride for the UT Vols, unless of course he had lost a bet which usually resulted in him having to wear blue for the University of Kentucky.
He has been working as as custodian since October 2000, and is seen often roaming halls looking for his mop, expecting that Ms. Choate, Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Alley were pulling another one of their pranks, or is asking over and over "what you doing".
Everyone at PCHS are sending their love and support to the man in orange, who is greatly missed.
