Staff and administrators at Oglesby School participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge to benefi t the ALS Association. They have issued a challenge to their counterparts at Jonesboro ISD to follow suit before the Tigers and Eagles face off on the football fi eld on Oct. 10 at Tiger Stadium. At Oglesby, all staff members sat in a semi-circle and allowed football players and cheerleaders to soak them with ice water while the student body cheered them on.
