Good Morning, Hilliard Davidson! Today is Wednesday, April 24, 2018, and these are your morning announcements.  

CATS Quote for today: There is a big difference between a “want ethic” and a “work ethic.” The difference is this: Wanting is easy. Working is hard.   Tim Kight

Happy Birthday Today to: Richard Conaster, Quinnan Hetrick, Emma Lynch, Madyson Schmidt, Davis Sell, and Klara Smrecnaskyy

If you have any questions, please see Ms. Canlas or one of The Wildcat editors.
