Students, parents, teachers, elders, and locals all gathered in excitement on Friday, September 14th to watch the annual district homecoming parade! Avenue of the Cities was filled with smiling faces and children waiting anxiously to grab all the candy they could get! For senior Bella Mitchell, the most memorable part of her last homecoming parade was, “seeing the smiles on all the kids faces. It brightens everyone’s day to see them get so excited to get candy and wave!” A lot must take place in order to get the entire parade prepared before stepping off, and without the help of the chairpersons at MHS, none of it could’ve been done. Junior Maddie Peterson was selected from Student Council to be one of the chairpersons to help organize the entire homecoming parade. From her experience, Maddie said, “It was very fun! With all the other chairpersons it was very easy to line up each float and court member. I was glad I was picked as well because cutting class is always fun and being included in the parade a different way was such a cool experience!” The homecoming parade not only showcases different clubs and organizations, but it also displays the members of the homecoming court that were voted by students and teachers! Senior Austin Morris was one of the selected members of court and he said, “Honestly, being a part of homecoming court has been one of my best high school experiences. There are so many great people on court and it has been an honor to become closer to them all. Obviously it was great being able to ride in a convertible, but I think simply being on court was the coolest part.” With the help of students, faculty, and parents, the 2018 homecoming parade was definitely one for the books!
