If you totaled up all the high school students that are a part of all the programs that have a hand in helping with the Apple n' Pork Festival, you would get to nearly half of the student body in Clinton that helps with the annual festival.
That's according to high school Principal Jerry Wayne who says it isn't an exact number but so many of the school's programs are part of the annual festival in some form or fashion.
For athletic director Matt Koeppel, the opportunity for kids to spend an hour and a half parking cars to make budgets for all the extra things they want to do is an opportunity unlike anything he's ever been a part of.
Wayne says the high school band gets things started for the musical entertainment on the CH Moore Homestead on Saturday morning. The sports teams will help park cars at the high school throughout the weekend. There will be the FFA pork chops on the 4-H fairgrounds. The M-squad will be serving their caramel apples and many more students will be helping in other phases of the festival throughout the weekend.
