Senior John Thompson sports a kiss on his cheek, living up his last homecoming. He states “I’m here for a good time, not a long time.”

Mrs. Benjamin said “ I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed doing this”.

The game on Friday night was a close game with a score of 27- 30 with Sharon winning in the last few minutes. That wasn’t going to stop the fun of homecoming. This year the queen was Morgan Wagg and the king being Sean Northcott, who were already paired as a couple.

Northcott says “It feels pretty good to win because I didn’t expect it. I thought Kaleb would’ve won”.

Homecoming is a dance at the high school for all students in grades 9-12. This years theme was “once upon a time.” which was chosen by student council and Mrs. Gallagher. The dance was held in the high school gym on Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 7:00- 10:00.
