The academic pep rally concluded with Armdore Principal Tommy Hunter and Limestone County Schools Interim Superintendent Zebbra Green presenting the Limestone County Schools Academic Trophy to senior class president, Maggie Mitchell.  Ardmore has won the trophy 10 times in the past 12 years, including each of the past seven years.
