EAGLE PRIDE: Goshen celebrates homecoming week

Published 7:41 pm Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Tuesday was a rather unusual day at Goshen High School for both students and teachers as they celebrated Homecoming Week 2019 in Wacky Tacky fashion.

At a glance, it could be thought the students attired themselves while, either or asleep or in the dark of night but, no, they said, “It’s all in the fun of Goshen High School Homecoming Week.”

Scores of students and several teachers took advantage of the opportunity to come to school wearing the wildest and craziest clothes in their closets.

Art teacher Alex McLendon said Wacky Tacky Day is all in fun and she was having as much fun as her students.

GHS teacher Sheila Ballard gathered students in the hallway and, seemingly, found favor in their Wacky Tacky efforts by allowing them time to post for photos.

“Girls are too reserved,” said Braden Snyder who was not exactly Wacky-Tacky but he was more than willing to clown around.

Homecoming activities will continue throughout the week. Today, it might be difficult to tell who’s who because it’s Twins’ Day and friends will be dressed alike “in some fashion.”

Thursday will be a pins-and-needles day as the student body awaits the announcement of the Goshen High School 2019 Homecoming Queen and her Court at the 8:30 a.m. assembly. The queen and her court then will reign throughout the GHS Homecoming activities.

The Glow in the Dark Pep Rally is set for Thursday night and spirits will be Eagle high for the 2019 GHS Homecoming events on Friday.

The Homecoming Parade will be at 1:30 p.m. and will begin at the school and parade through downtown Goshen. With the highly-anticipated GHS Homecoming football game between the High-Flying GHS Eagles and Lions of Central-Hayneville.

Following the taming of the Lions, the old GHS gymnasium will be transformed into a place to dance the night away.

GHS alumni are invited to join the fun of GHS Homecoming week along with the students and the extended Goshen community.
