Sigma Epsilon, a service sorority in Barry County since about 1978, and family members tailgate before the Wildcats football team's first home game Friday night. Megan Cox, left, and Tiffany Bomke, middle, are the sorority's co-presidents. The sorority sponsors a high school senior girl each year, buying school supplies and donating a college scholarship for the student, Bomke said. It also operates Project Prom, where the sorority provides prom dresses for high school girls. About 13 or 14 girls received dresses the previous school year. Jason Johnston
