Congratulations to Mrs. Erin Breland who was selected as Poplarville High School’s Teacher of the Year. She was selected by her colleagues for this award.
Mrs. Breland attended PRCC for two years and then transferred to USM where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Math. She has been teaching Foundations of Algebra and Algebra 1 for the past 3 years at Poplarville High School.
Mrs. Breland reflects on her favorite part of teaching, “My favorite part of teaching is when a student’s attitude about school completely changes. I love to hear students say that they can’t wait to come to my room to learn. I love seeing them light up when they have finally understood a concept that they have never understood before. I also love being able to be a positive influence to students. I try to exhibit the behaviors that will help these students be successful not only in the classroom but in life as well”.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication to Poplarville High School!

There wasn’t much room to sit Friday Night at Hornet Field and not much room to run for Quitman as the Poplarville Hornet Defense suffocated the Panthers in a 33-12 2nd Round Playoff win. The Panthers could only manage to reach the endzone twice Friday night, once on a ball that was nearly intercepted in the 1st quarter and again on a long run in the 3rd quarter. The Hornet Defense played with an intensity that the Quitman Panthers had not yet seen. Peyton Graham led the team in tackles, tallying 10 solos and 2 assists. Seniors Chad Hart and Turan Smith combined for 17 tackles to aid in the Defenses impressive effort. The Hornets would lead Quitman going in at halftime by a score of 7-6 as Austin Bolton capped off a 93 yard 20 play drive with a 1 yard TD plunge into the checkerboards. Austin would find the endzone once more and finish the night with 137 yards on 26 carries and 2 TDs. The second half started off great for the Hornets as QB Antonio Barnes found WR Canaan Ray for a 51 yard TD pass on the second play. Sophomore Canaan Ray would add to his total with another TD catch in the 4th quarter that ultimately sealed the deal for the Hornets. Barnes would finish the night with 102 yards on 4 completions and 2 TDs. The Hornets were led once again in rushing by Senior Captain Jesse Pernell. Pernell amassed 157 yards on 22 carries and found the endzone once. The Hornets will travel to Mendenhall to take on the Tigers in 3rd Round action on Friday, November 18. Kickoff is set for 7:00. Come out and support your Hornets.
