Loud, upbeat music and plenty of dancing captivated students at EHS on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 8:00-11:00 PM. The annual Homecoming dance concluded with “The Closing Ceremony” of a spirit-filled homecoming week.
Former EHS student, Justin Hymer, returned once again as DJ Hymz. After a long, sweaty night in the EHS cafeteria with a variety of different songs, Senior Meghan Waller explained, “The music was a lot better than last year. This was the most fun I have had at Homecoming!”
Taking a pause from the dancing, this year’s Homecoming court was announced, and students stood on an Olympic podium for their picture.
Former king, Travis Dietrich, and former queen, Mercer Mack, crowned the new royalty. This year’s queen was senior Audrey Jones, escorted by the new King, senior Luke Lockart. “I was surprised and honored to have been chosen by my peers,” expressed Luke. “This year, there was more involvement, and I think that our senior class’s attitude toward Homecoming played a role in the participation of the students,” he added.
Despite the heat, students danced their hearts our until 11:00 PM and were the reason that Homecoming and spirit week were such a success.
