2010 SCR-1 Homecoming Next Week

Scotland County R-1 Homecoming is just around the corner. “The Tigers Don’t Play Games” is the theme for this year’s festivities, all of which is based around board games.

The Tigers will face the Milan Wildcats in the showdown at 7 p.m. on October 1.

For students, the excitement begins on Monday with themed dress-up days at school, such as Monday is “Pajama Day”, Tuesday is “Nerd Day”, Wednesday will be “Wacky Wednesday”, Thursday is going to be “Gangsta Day”, and Friday is “GAME DAY”.

The community is encouraged to participate in the events that will be held. The bonfire pep rally will be held Thursday evening on September 30 behind the high school immediately following the Junior High home football game.

The homecoming parade will be at 1:45 p.m. on Friday, October 1 around the Memphis Square. Everyone attending should sit on the west, north, or east sides of the square. Right after the parade there will be a community pep rally on the west side of the courthouse, all leading up to the showdown between the Tigers and Wildcats Friday evening.

The attendants selected for each grade are as follows: 7th grade are Miranda Holland and Brendan Orton; 8th grade are Chelsea Burkhiser and William McRobert; Freshman are Desera Knupp and Jed Troutman; Sophomore are Hailie Stone and Austin Smith; Junior are Courtney Jackson and Ben Shannan. The Homecoming king and queen will be crowned by the 2009 king and queen, Kyle Shelley and McKinsay Cooley. Candidates for the 2010 king and queen competition are Catie Shalley and Rod Sears; Kristie Parrish and Sabe Sears; Monica Weidenbenner and Dakota Wells; Samara Brush and Will See. The king and queen will be crowned during the half-time ceremonies of Friday night’s game.

In advance, thank you for all of your support for the Scotland County Tigers and this year’s Homecoming events.
