When they put up the instruments they heard a blood-curdling scream. They ran from the band room to the gym. It was locked; nothing could get in, unless it was something hard to explain. They ran back to the band room, at first, the trio was skeptical because it was the day before the band Halloween party and they thought that it was a prank. They went back to their instruments. Then again they heard the screaming. Except it was yelling for someone or something to quit. The three ran from the band room, leaving the instruments behind. From that day you can still hear the yelling if you are quite early in the morning standing in the Nettleton High Band Room. - One night after a band party, a group of band members decided to go run around in the gym. This was pretty late and almost everyone was gone home. The group split up and decided to go up to the cheerleading room. There they found that the room was extremely cold and for some odd reason they couldn't find the light switch. After leaving the cheerleading room they ran down the stairs where they heard screams. Now these weren't any ordinary screams, they were the kind of screams that you would only hear if someone was being stabbed or hurt. There was no explanation for the screams because at the time the group had all reunited. The whole group then ran down the stairs to find leaves falling from the ceiling of the gym, as if it was a tree. One of the girls in the group saw the shadow of what looked like a football player. They all thought that this was a joke until they heard a door slam and then saw another door swinging.

The structure is built on top of an old Cherokee Indian Burial Site. The mounds were disturbed when groundwork was being done for the foundation. - December 2005 correction: a girl committed suicide in a room. If you go by (its right in front of "Watta-Burger" which is famous in Arkansas) the front of the building you can see that on the second floor right in the middle there’s a window bricked out. The girl was either having family problems or boyfriend problems and hung herself out of the window so that she would be in front of the doors in the morning when they found her. There’s also a story that she hung herself in the closet but the closets really aren’t big enough at tech for that. The room is cut in half, one half blocked off the other used as a storage space. They even expanded a room to make it a 3-person room to fit all the girls in. Things like Water Leaking from the ceiling happen in all the rooms around it from time to time and its just a very eerie building. And every once in a while the power will shut off in the building.
