The last homecoming

Homecoming king and queen, seniors Aiden Hammond and Jaci Edwards, pose for a photo after being crowned. This year’s homecoming has certainly been different, but the senior class tried to make the most out of every moment.

For the class of 2021’s final homecoming, things looked quite different. With only two dress up days, no homecoming parade, and no homecoming dance, we had to make the most of every moment that we got to enjoy. 

On the first dress up day, seniors got to dress up as the decade they have been looking forward to for the last three years: the 80’s. Neon flooded classrooms and ‘80s music filled the halls as seniors strutted down the red carpet. 

“I loved dressing up for homecoming because it felt like we were still able to keep some traditions alive,” senior Kelly Fox said. “I was especially excited that I could still dress up for ‘80s day because I’ve waited three years to wear all of the bright colors.”

For the second dress up day, seniors wore togas to keep up with the senior tradition. Although the official dress up theme was character day, seniors took the theme into their own hands to celebrate their last homecoming.  

On Friday night, the football team played a close game with Harris County, winning 14-10. At half time, the homecoming court took the field. Seniors Aiden Hammond and Jaci Edwards were crowned as king and queen of the court. 

“I was genuinely so surprised, and I am so thankful to be crowned homecoming king,” Hammond said. “It’s a moment I will never forget.”

Although homecoming was different this year, seniors tried to make the most out of their last high school homecoming.
