Big Walnut High School’s weeklong schedule of Fall Homecoming activities is underway, leading up to tomorrow evening’s crowning of the 2012 Fall Homecoming Queen, followed by the traditional homecoming football game.
Tomorrow’s school day ends with a Spirit and Pep Rally in the high school gymnasium to determine which is the most spirited class — freshmen, sophomores, juniors or seniors; and at 5:15 p.m. students from all six district school buildings will gather at Sunbury United Methodist Church to stage the 6 p.m. Fall Homecoming Parade.
Each district school building prepares a float for the parade, and students from each school march in the parade to show their Eagle Spirit. After the parade, one school is chosen as the most spirited, and will be home to the Eagle Spirit Trophy for the next 12 months.
Back at the high school stadium, the 2012 Fall Homecoming Candidates and Court will be introduced at 7:05 p.m., followed by the crowning of the Fall Homecoming Queen.
The Big Walnut High School 2012 Fall Homecoming Queen candidates are Maggie Ferguson, Natalie Chatterton and Ali Malik, who will be escorted by Dom Zitello, Carson Chatterton and Adam Shaheen, respectively.
Court members are freshmen Sarah Hatfield and Jacob Young, sophomores Avery Kerns and Nick Guglielmi, and juniors Olivia Daggett and Micah Abrogast.
During the crowning ceremony, members of the high school’s Senior Choir will sing the National Anthem and Big Walnut High School Alma Mater.
The Homecoming football game against visiting Ohio Capital Conference Capital Division rival Mount Vernon kicks off at 7:30 p.m.
On Saturday, the homecoming dance will be held from 8 to 11 p.m. at the high school. Tickets are $7 presale and $10 at the door.
