Hello Blue Devil Family:
I am an anonymous parent of a White House High School athlete and a volunteer in our community. A member of our school has been nominated for the Main Street Preps Person of the Year award and I asked him if I could share this post through White House BDP. Voting is open from December 5th-27th and I would appreciate you voting for Mr. Freeman at the link. Vote: Main Street Preps Person of the Year. An email address is needed to cast your vote, and I do not know how many times you are allowed to vote. Several parents nominated Mr. Freeman and now that voting is open, we would love for you to support a person who is a big part of our school.
Mr. Freeman is a teacher at WHHS in his second year, but began working with White House in 1994 after he graduated high school. He teaches social media marketing, business communications and digital arts, and is an assistant softball coach. He served as a local pastor for 22 years, and is also the voice of the Vanderbilt Commodores men’s and women’s basketball programs at Memorial Gym, and many of TSSAA baseball, basketball and football championships. His daughter Madison is a senior and son Noah is a sophomore, and his wife Jennifer works at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
I asked him to share this post and that’s tough because he is the one who runs our White House BDP sites, and he did not want to share it, but expressed his deep thanks for the nomination and recognition to all of you.
I nominated Kris Freeman in the “other” category because I didn’t know where to limit him. He is a parent, teacher and a volunteer. He is a dad to two student athletes at WHHS. He is a teacher at WHHS. He is the Sports Information Director and PA Announcer for multiple sports at WHHS. When I think of someone who goes above and beyond for our school, Kris Freeman epitomizes this concept. His students are at nearly every game and function for WHHS taking pictures. He then edits and uploads these images with clever captions and graphics to all of our social media accounts. He keeps individual and team stats updated. When not in the pressbox or scorer’s table at home games, he can be found on the sidelines or somewhere in stands broadcasting games on Facebook live. Our fans have always had a great appreciation for him. This year opposing team fans and players have appreciated his broadcasts when they couldn’t be at the games due to Covid restrictions. He keeps up with and posts about all clubs, activities and organizations at WHHS. Band of Pride, DECA, Speech competitions, Veteran’s Day Assembly, Graduations, Facebook live videos to show us how to pick up food from the school this past spring and summer when WHHS was a pick up location when schools were shut down. You name it, he has done an update and post about it. Our social media sites are always one of the best in the state and sometimes have been in the top Nationally for High School sites followed. I know there must be a million other things he does that I have left off this list, but these more than make him deserving of this recognition. WHHS is lucky to have him!
