This year’s homecoming theme was “Better Together”. The Greyhounds showed that they are “Better Together” even when six feet apart!
Students showed their school spirit during Homecoming Week by participating in the dress-up days. Some of these days included twin day, dynamic groups, and black and gold day. Even on City versus Country day and Clash of Classes day, students showed that they are “better together.”
This year’s class maids were Brylee Nash, 7th grade; Kayla Lawrence, 8th grade; Cadee Johnson, Freshman; Paige Mitchell, Sophomore; Mackenzie Boshears, Junior; and Kylee Crotts, Senior. Kylee Crotts was crowned senior queen and Cadee Johnson was crowned as junior queen. Following the ceremony the senior and junior high boys played against Crowley's Ridge Academy. Encouraged by the cheerleaders and crowd, the teams were victorious.
Kylee Crotts thanked her classmates and SHHS “for the opportunity and the honor of representing the senior class. This is something I will remember forever.”
