2022 is the year of the Tiger.
The tiger is the symbol of ambition, courage, self-confidence and a commitment to help others. By these traits alone, 2022 might as well be the year of sophomore Jordyn Dodson-Jenson.
Dodson-Jenson made Glenelg history by becoming the school’s first female football player when she held the first extra point for the Gladiators against Hammond High School on Sep. 2 and has started every game since. Ambition, courage, self-confidence: check.

In 1958, Bobby Darin’s “Splish Splash” topped the billboard charts, President Eisenhower signed NASA into law, and WHAM-O introduced the Hula Hoop to the world.
