Homecoming is a time when alumni return to the school to reminisce. Homecoming usually includes a week of festivities, including a dance and a sporting event, such as a football game. The homecoming queen is chosen by her fellow students, and she usually is someone who is active in the school and a model of school spirit.

“I am so excited about being this year’s Homecoming Queen,” Hoder said moments after accepting her crown, sash. “I wasn’t expecting this, so I am so thankful.”
