Homecoming shows spirit

Homecoming in Keota means time to get out your crazy gear for dress up days and show what your school spirit is all about. This year, the student council worked hard to ensure that this year would be as successful as the years past.

“Planning and preparing for Homecoming is an extensive effort and takes a lot of help. From deciding the theme to designing and ordering the t-shirts and buttons, ordering flowers, tiara, and crown; treats for Anything Goes, Pie in the Face contest, selling buttons, decorating the school, organizing Anything Goes activities, planning the pep rally; choosing number one Eagle fan, planning the dance; and, of course, cleanup it takes a lot of help,” said Student Council Advisor Michael Jacobsen.

This year the student council media liaison worked effectively before the week to get the word out for all students as well as community members about the activities for the week.

For dress up day winners each day, County Line was able to treat the winners with candy bars. Seniors were the winners of the Anything Goes events, although the rest of the student staff thinks there may have been some cheating going on, while others say that is part of the tradition.

Grace McHugh and Luke Greiner were named King and Queen and Andy Conrad was named the “Number One Eagle Fan” for all of his hard work and dedication to the school.

“A special credit goes to Luke Greiner as President as well as Riley Conrad serving as the MC's of the Anything Goes event while Addison Sprouse and Lauren Imhoff served as MC's of the Pep Rally. Jung Diang, while technically not on the council, still agreed to do the t-shirt and button design again and did a great job. Planning Homecoming takes a lot of work but I would say all-in-all Keota Homecoming 2018 has been a success,” Jacobsen said.
