Through a series of voting, the Homecoming attendants were chosen by their classes.  The senior class voted to nominate four girls as Homecoming Queen Candidates and four boys as King Candidates.  The entire student body will vote to select the Queen and King. The Queen and King will be crowned on Thursday night at the Pep Rally.

The Pep rally will feature all Fall Sports’ participants and the crowning of the King and Queen.  The winners for the class competitions held during the festival earlier in the day will be announced.  There will also be a “Yell” contest, with the four classes competing to determine which class cheers the loudest.
