As we move swiftly into autumn, we encounter one of the best weeks of the school year: homecoming week.

All students from freshmen to seniors show their school spirit by dressing up to match the theme of the day. The enthusiasm built up during this week all leads to the homecoming football game on Friday, when the student body gathers to watch our boys of fall play and see the homecoming court presentation at halftime.

Students who were elected to be on court walk the field and are presented as a couple for the whole crowd to see. Senior Alyssa Moffitt and her boyfriend Jerrail McMickens were voted onto court for the second time in a row this year.

Alyssa said she was surprised by this because she did not realize that so many people even knew who they were. However, she expressed how great it is to see so many different social groups being represented on court.

Another student who was chosen by her class to be on homecoming court was sophomore Reagan Rhino. When asked what the most exciting part about being in court was for her, she explained it to be picking out her favorite dresses for all of the activities she gets to participate in such as ride in the homecoming parade, walk the field at the game, and be recognized for being on court at the dance.

But, I think the whole student body would agree that the most exciting event revolving around homecoming is the anticipation of waiting for the crowning of homecoming king and queen. With the great diversity among the senior court, it should be a surprise to all, regardless of the winner. But I suppose we will have to wait and see.
