Prior to the homecoming football game Friday night, the WHS Student Council hosted week-long activities, which included dress-up days, a bonfire and the annual homecoming parade.
The student body dressed to match the assigned dress of the day, which culminated in prizes for the best class. The senior class won the contest competition overall. The sophomore and freshman class tied for second, with the juniors came in third.
The 2011 seniors were assigned the honor of lighting the bonfire on Wednesday. The highlight of the bonfire was the pep rally and the naming of Mr. Pride and Miss Spirit for each class. Austin Moses and Bianca Zuniga were named for the senior class; Tyler Garza and Toni Bouck, junior class; Connor Payne and Brittany Lopez, sophomore class; and Lionel Brown and Taylor Perez, freshman class.
As a result of the rain and flooding, the homecoming parade was cancelled. The theme of the floats this year was “Countries.” The floats were judged in various categories.
The senior class won first place in Signs and Most Colorful; junior class, Best Overall, first in Costumes, and second in Signs.
The sophomore class won first in Most Creative, second in Originality; and the freshman class, won first in Originality, second in Best Costumes, Most Creative and Most Colorful.
“All of the signs and props were outstanding,” said a spokesperson. “The sponsors and students should be commended for the many hours of hard work put forth in their design and building”.
The Woodsboro Student Council members tipped their hats to Cindy Schubert and Kathleen Wren for serving as judges and to those who gave their time and effort and helped in preparations for the parade.
