Senior Bryce Winter and center on the football team plans to “Outsmart the Eagles” in his Nerd Day attire on Monday.
The halls are buzzing with anticipation of Homecoming, everyone’s favorite time of the year. At Paris High School, this event means door decorations, class floats, homecoming court, returning alumni, spirit week, and of course the Friday night game. This year’s Homecoming theme is “Wildcat Kingdom,” with a Medieval focus.
The week long celebration began yesterday with traditional events including Wildcat Spirit Week dress up days when students dress in special attire to show their spirit. Monday they “Outsmarted the Eagles!” and decked out in nerd attire. Tuesday was “Black Out the Eagles!” and black clothing was everywhere. Wildcats will “Show Character!” on Wednesday and dress as heroes or favorite characters. It’s “Hat’s Off to the Wildcats!” on Thursday and on Friday, we show our Wildcat pride in “Wildcat Kingdom” with spirit shirts.
Many special events are planned for Friday. Paris High School Principal Gary Preston will host a brunch in honor of Alumni and PHS Faculty from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. A school wide assembly for Pro Football Hall of Famer Raymond Berry is slated for 11 a.m. The Distinguished Graduate Awards will be presented in the PHS library at 1:30 p.m. followed by a first time viewing of the Wall of Honor. The Homecoming Pep Rally begins at 2:30 p.m. The parade begins immediately afterwards from Market Square.
Special game night activities include the Homecoming Queen Coronation beginning at 7 p.m. Nominees are
Seniors Taylor Bills, Tiera Easter, Dylan McDaniel, Maria Perez, and Jarviesha Wright.
Distinguished Graduate Awardees, Raymond Berry, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Deon Minor, Gene “Bebes” Stallings, and Admiral James O. Richardson (posthumous award) will be honored in pre-game events. All PHS Alumni will be acknowledged with special reunion recognition to Classes of ’87, ’92, and ’02 holding reunions in conjunction with homecoming.
Trolley rides will be available to assist walkers in the PHS parking lot and the overflow parking at Love Civic Center (if needed).
