Homecoming 2023: Student Council holds annual pep assembly to close out Homecoming week

The Homecoming pep assembly took place Friday, Sept. 22 and held entertaining events to increase school spirit.

Student Council held their annual Homecoming pep assembly Friday, Sept. 22. The assembly celebrated Homecoming week while also recognizing all sports and clubs that won state championships in the spring of 2023. Additionally, the pep assembly included introductions to the senior Homecoming candidates, a game of dizzy Tic-Tac-Toe with the candidates, a balloon popping game and ended with the traditional closing of the “hey hey what do you say?” chant challenge between grades.

Homecoming candidate senior Preston Fischer reflects on the candidate game.

“It sucks that [Homecoming candidate senior] Addi [Bailey] couldn’t compete in dizzy Tic-Tac-Toe with me due to her concussion,” Fischer said. “However, Chrysler and I have that synergy and would have gone crazy if it wasn’t for the bean bags being similar in color.”

Similarly to Fischer, Homecoming candidate senior Halle Wampler looks back on her win.

“The candidate game was super hard because I got super dizzy after spinning around ten times. It also did not help that [Homecoming candidate senior] Walt [Midyett] and I had to play three times in a row,” said Wampler. “It was worth the dizziness though when Walt and I were able to beat all our competition and win.”

Along with being a Homecoming candidate, Fischer was also in charge of helping plan the assembly. 

“This year, I was in charge of the pep assembly. It’s really just finding some fun games for the students and candidates to play and creating a script that the emcee’s can follow,” Fischer said. “[juniors] Connor Bohon and Hank Danielson were chosen to be the main emcees because we thought that they could do a good job controlling the crowd and while also getting everyone hyped up.”

Overall, Wampler shares her thoughts about the assembly as a whole. 

“I really enjoyed being a Homecoming candidate while also dancing with the Silver Stars at the pep assembly,” Wampler said. “I really loved the dancing because we did our hip hop routine from NDA camp and we had a lot of fun with it.”
