Grambling High School celebrated its annual Homecoming during the week of Nov. 4-8. The theme for this year’s Homecoming was “Go Hard or Go Home”.
Classes at Grambling High School participated in the Homecoming pep rally in which each class competed individually in several extra-curricular competitions and an obstacle course.
The junior class won the door decorating contest. The senior class won best shirt design and was awarded the spirit stick, and after an intense and exciting contest, the juniors were declared the winners of the obstacle course.
The students thoroughly enjoyed the activities throughout the week. Many even got a laugh when students came dressed for Celebrity Day as characters such as Wanda from “In Living Color”, Shenehneh and Romey Rome from “Martin”, and “Juwanna Man”.
Mershell Watson, the 2013-2014 GHS Homecoming Queen, and other organizational queens were paraded through Grambling State University Campus. The 2013 GHS Football Team and the GHS Band, cheerleaders, majorettes, flag line, and Du Maine Dancers also participated in the parade and a pep rally held in the high school gymnasium.
Homecoming activities ended with a Kitten victory over district opponent Ringgold. This victory acquired the GHS Kittens a play-off berth in the LHSAA State Tournament.
Many students at GHS were excited about the Homecoming events.
“This year’s homecoming was a very different, yet exciting experience,” said senior Paris Greene.
One GHS student said, “Our Homecoming week was filled with great activities that involved both the high school and middle school.”
“Our Homecoming week was exciting, competitive, and fun-filled,” said senior Adarian Williams.
Macie Andrews, an junior said, “Our Homecoming week had to be the most enhanced than the previous ones.”
“Our Homecoming was dynamite,” senior Jae Hill said emphatically.
