Fancy Friday is something quite a few of students do here at Asheville Middle. Basically, Fancy Friday is a tradition where every Friday, a group of students dresses up in their best, most fancy, and elaborate outfits. O’Brien Gibbs was one of the students who participated in this tradition that has been going on for over a year.
O’Brien was always known to be not only one of the kindest, intelligent, and most down to earth kids, but also one of the best dressed. Every Friday, I would look forward to walking down the halls, looking over, and seeing another one of O’Briens crazy, fancy outfits. As we mourn the loss of our dearest O’Brien, we ask that you dress up today and every other Friday if you can, to show your respect to him, Ms. Landreth, and the rest of their family.
If you want another way to show your respect, we are holding a vigil for O’Brien and William Edward tonight at the AMS football field from 7:30-8:30pm, where students will be performing some of O'Brien's favorite songs. I look forward to seeing everyone there in their best Fancy Friday attire.
