November 12, 2020 — Unique challenges made Homecoming 2020 an especially memorable occasion this year. Despite restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, student leaders at Mound Westonka High School rose to the challenge of keeping the Homecoming tradition alive.
Seniors Alyssa Bourdon and Joshua Nkhata were crowned Homecoming Queen and King Nov. 1 to kick off a week of activities. The coronation ceremony included the traditional procession, with court members escorted by their parents. Students and staff, along with the rest of the community were invited to participate via livestream.
"It was incredibly exciting that we were able to have a Homecoming Week this year!” said MWHS Assistant Principal Marty Fischer. “Our Student Senate did an amazing job to work with ‘what they had’ to pull off a virtual coronation, a medallion hunt and dress up days.”
Spirit signs were sold at the high school and students promoted school spirit in a variety of ways, including a virtual pep fest. Students across the district participated in dress-up days and showed off their White Hawk spirit. The week began with the coronation and ended with a big win on the football field.
“Keeping as many traditions alive was their goal and they were successful in doing that,” Fischer added. “Thanks to everyone who helped make 2020 Homecoming a continuing tradition!"
