Sikeston High School’s Red Pepper Organization, which supports school athletics and promotes school spirit, was started in 1928 and is one of the oldest high school organizations in the state of Missouri and west of the Mississippi River. The Red Peppers carry on an 80-year tradition with a week of activities for “Greenies,” girls who are not yet full Red Peppers. After several activities and requirements, the Greenies receive an official Red Pepper emblem.
