Senior Laura-Clare Thevenet, escorted by senior Ryan Norris, is crowned Wilson Hall’s 43rd Homecoming Queen.

Senior Laura-Clare Thevenet was crowned the 43rd Homecoming Queen during halftime of the football game at Spencer Field on October 10.  The senior class nominated seven girls from the class to be on the homecoming court, and students in grades 9-12 voted for the queen. In addition to Laura-Clare, the following seniors were elected to the court: Kendall  Brogdon, Daisy Chumbler, Hannah Jordan, Hanna Niebuhr, Holly Scott and Hayley Smoak.

A variety of activities took place to celebrate homecoming. Spirit week found students dressing up to the following themes: athletic jersey, crazy sweater, group dress-up, throwback Thursday, and extreme blue and white.

Students arrived to campus the morning of homecoming to find the entire high school building decorated by the varsity cheerleading squad to the theme of Barons Travel through the Decades. From the 1920s to the 1990, each decade was represented with intricately painted banners and decorations.

The Student Council sponsored the 41st annual Homecoming Parade which traveled the four-mile route through nearby neighborhoods on the afternoon of the 10th. Each class in grades 6-12 sponsored a float decorated to themes ranging from Batman to The Wizard of Oz, and every middle and high school student rode in the parade. Charles and Barbara Smith were the grand marshals for the parade.

Wilson Hall raised $1,965.00 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through the Give Green and Green Out campaigns. For the Give Green campaign sponsored by the Student Council, students in preschool through twelfth grade donated money to honor the six Wilson Hall students who have or have had leukemia or lymphoma. Students wore green, the color for lymphoma awareness, to school and to the varsity football game for the Green Out on September 26 at which time members of the Key Club collected donations from fans.
