Hettinger holds outdoor coronation ceremony
2016 Homecoming began with coronation on Tuesday night Sept. 7, 2016 at the football field. This year, due to the renovation project at the school, we broke with some of our traditions. Students and staff of Hettinger Public School should be commended for their flexibility during the renovation projects. Members of the homecoming court were selected by the senior class. This year each member of the class received votes from their classmates, a testament to the cohesiveness of this group. Alec Andress, Damon Cornelius, and Nevan Weaver were the young men selected to be on the court. Eli Kaitfors, Nicole Landsem, and Brianna Robinson were the young ladies. On Tuesday morning the students in grades nine through twelve voted for the King and Queen
Many students in grades seven through twelve gathered at the football field Tuesday evening. Each grade had a flag which the class had designed and produced. The torch bearer, Jordan Hill, ran into the stadium and the ceremony began. Each class came out onto the field, presented its flag, and raised a cheer for its grade. This was followed by the crown bearers, second grade students Johanna Korang and Kolby Melling. Then the candidates proceeded in. Mr. Moser, crowned the king, Alec Andress. Alec then gave his proclamation, which all of the candidates had pre-recorded, Alec crowned our 2016 Homecoming Queen, Brianna Robinson who then read her proclamation. The evening ended with the burning of the NH.
This event would not have been nearly so successful without the help of several people: Ms. Jeri Dunn, our decorator, and master of ceremony. Vivian Robinson our recording master. Mr. Kohler and Mr. Moser and, of course, Mr. Schmaltz and his awesome group of students that always take care of the “burning” portion of our program. Most importantly the students of Hettinger Public School, the kids whohave used their imagination and ingenuity, are making this a homecoming week to remember.
