    ST. PETERSBURG

    Alexa Dammage arrived on the first day of her junior year at Gibbs High School expecting to roam through the same bland hallways as she did the past two years.

    Members of Gibbs High’s new pep squad make some noise during a rally at the school on Friday. From left are gladiator mascot Ian Moss, soon to be 18; Kiara King, 17; Chasity Gause, 18; Aynashia DeLaney, 17; and Alyssa Wright, 17.

    Clearwater Christian College announced in June that it would close. IRS documents in 2013 show it was $10.2 million in debt.
