Glow in the dark volleyball, dress-up days, floats and a parade through the heart of town at sunset highlighted festivities for Herder nation last week, as a full schedule of fun brought the community together for homecoming.
According to Student Senate Advisor Chase Anfinson, attendance at the various offerings was up for most of the busy week.
“It was probably the most participation we’ve seen in a lot of years,” Anfinson said. “It was encouraging to see students taking advantage of celebrating the school and the community.”
Tuesday was a prime example of how a good turnout can make a fun event even better. Anfinson noted that the glow in the dark volleyball game had 11 teams and approximately 70 kids come out. The dance later in the week had 120 students attend, which is nearly 70 percent of the student body.
Last Wednesday evening, eager children and family members lined the sidewalks of Birch Street to greet students as they paraded through town en route to Town Park for a cookout and pep rally.
The band provided musical entertainment as members of the Glenrock Volunteer Fire Department set a wooden bronc cutout of the Burns’ mascot ablaze as the sun dipped beneath the horizon.
Assistant football coach and high school teacher Ryan Collier grabbed the microphone and urged students and attendees to gather around as he and representatives for varsity teams pumped up the crowd.
During the football game Friday night, the homecoming court was brought out to the field and seniors Yesenia Hermosillo and Brysen Collier were named king and queen.
Tucker Bopp and Autumn Hiser were named first attendants, while Urian Moreno and Kassandra Baker were named second attendants.
For the junior class, Kolbe Bloem and Peyton Shadrick were named prince and princess, while the sophomore class voted Kade Guenther and Hope Rau to be prince and princess. Lastly, Zachary Coleman and Kayleen Harris were named prince and princess for the freshman class.
