I haven’t been to a Homecoming since I was in High School. They do things differently in a small southern town. Yes, Homecoming is still a big deal! And, like most schools a week long event, at least.
To start the Homecoming festivities, I attended the pep rally, but only to support the little clarinet player shown in the bottom right. Yes, every picture I have seen her playing in, she is standing in that exact position.
About half a dozen of the Cheerleaders were in the Homecoming court. Even though the cheerleaders was not very impressive during the pep rally, they stood out during the game. They cheered constantly with big smiles on their faces. I am disappointed I did not get a picture of them during the game.
It surprised me, during the pep rally, that all the girls is the court were not wearing a dress. But, things change over time. When I was in High School, the Homecoming Court was just a popularity contest. But, ever single girl on this court earn their spot. They had a long list of accomplishments including serving in clubs and doing charity work. The court include a girl with down syndrome, but she also earn her spot by being a member of the dance team and serving in several clubs.
I didn’t take any pictures of the football game. I was there to support the band. Who did a awesome job at half time.
