Homecoming Week at MHS

Posted on: October 1, 2020

It’s Homecoming Week at Milford High School and the community came out last evening to show their support by participating in the “Reverse Homecoming Parade” planned by Student Council. 

Due to health safety concerns, the traditional Homecoming Parade was reimagined into a “Reverse Homecoming Parade” this year. Instead of parading through the street, student groups, clubs, extracurriculars, sports teams, and the Homecoming Court were set up along the drive behind the high school, and vehicles can drive through the campus.

14 students comprise this year’s Homecoming Court. These students won by a popular vote. The senior class votes for eight students for Homecoming Court and the top two vote-getters receive the title of Homecoming Royalty. The younger grades each vote for two students to represent their class. Last year, the terminology was changed from Homecoming “King and Queen” to “Homecoming Royalty” to reflect the voices of Milford’s student body. 

Milford High School’s 2020 Homecoming Court:

Shann Deak - Senior

Leah Dool - Senior

Kyle Flannery - Sophomore

Lauren Hickey - Senior

JP Naylor - Freshman

Caden Nixon - Senior

Maggie Soult - Senior

Audrey Stromatt - Freshman

Homecoming Royalty:

Payton Bauer - Senior

Vince Ringland - Senior

"In the midst of a global pandemic, our students demonstrated incredible leadership and creativity in reimagining Homecoming,” said Josh Kauffman, Milford High School Principal. “I'm proud that our annual Homecoming festivities are a reflection of the voice and interests of our students. The choices our students make in selecting our Homecoming Court and Royalty are just one way for them to make Homecoming theirs. Congratulations to our Homecoming Royalty, Vince and Payton, and to all of the students who were a part of Homecoming Court."

Along with the parade happening Wednesday evening, this week has been spirit week - students dressed up as different themes each day such as “Binge Watching Character Day” and “Zoom Call Day.” The Pep Rally that would typically occur in the gym during the school day was moved to a virtual event, and the Homecoming Dance will instead be a virtual “Stay at HOMEcoming” dance on Saturday evening. This year due to limitations on spectators at athletic events for health safety reasons, Homecoming will not be celebrated at a football game.

“The students came up with some great alternative Homecoming events this year that could be done safely while providing an opportunity for all students to be involved,” said Superintendent John Spieser. 

A total of $750 in donations were collected at the parade to benefit Mark Zahn’s family. Mr. Zahn is a HVAC Technician in our district. He and his wife were injured in an accident last month. The donations will help with medical bills for the family.
