The student section, historically known as The Nest, has been a way for students to band together to cheer on their peers since the school’s beginning. Originating with football, it has spread to the other sports and clubs but has had difficulty maintaining and retaining the same hype level. However, this school year, the Nest 2.0 will be focusing on bringing more students together in all aspects of school events.
“Our purpose is to come up with ways to get the student body to support each organization as much as possible,” Sky Dancer representative Brianna Bennett said. “We really want every sport or group or organization to feel like everyone knows what’s going on and [become] as involved as possible.”
Student representatives from each sport and club have come together to decide how best to get more of the student population to appear at the diversity of events. Beginning to meet up at the end of last school year, the representatives have met up in monthly meetings to decide the best course of action.
Ultimately, the Timber Creek administrative team and the students collectively decided upon a list of incentives for students to partake in.
Students must bring their school ID badges to each event in order to gain credit for being there. A select person (either student representative or an administrator) will have a badge scanner which is how the list of names and number of appearances will be recorded. Events will be totaled each week and incentives will be awarded.

“[We want everyone to] show support [for] every organization,” Bennett said. “We want everyone to feel like they have the support of their peers.”
