Holly Springs High School is proud of our military families, and we seek to provide recognition of, and services to, our community active-duty members and veterans' families.
Students with actively deployed family members often face even more unique challenges and may need access to additional resources. We have compiled a list of online resources and tools to help families of active duty and veteran service members.
The Holly Springs High School's contact person is Mr. Mike Bowen. He is ready to help meet the needs of our military families. Also, the following online resources may be valuable to our students in military families.
