Pierce City High School will celebrate its annual football homecoming on Sept. 16 when the Eagles take on the Greenfield Wildcats.

This year's homecoming theme is "Jungle Boogie." Activities on Monday will be centered around "Hidden Jungle," where students will search for leaves around the school to win a candy prize. On Tuesday, students are urged to "go wild" and wear jungle print clothing.

On Wednesday, students will don face paint for an "animals everywhere" day. "It's a Jungle Out There" on Thursday will be marked by a hall decorating contest and homecoming T-shirt day. Friday will be "Spirit of the Jungle Day" as students are encouraged to go crazy with green and white to show their school spirit.

Three seniors are vying for the crown of homecoming queen: Brianna Carter, the daughter of Melissa Carter and Quentin Carter; Makina Kelley, the daughter of Mitch and Mendi Kelley; and Kaelyn Osborn, the daughter of Rodger and Traci Osborn.

Carter is active in Drama Club and the Foreign Language Club. She said she is most like the nocturnal ocelot because she is small and loves being up at night. Her escorts will be James Harrison and Brett Neely.

Kelley is president of the senior class and the Student Council. She competes in softball and track and is a member of the National Honor Society, Future Business Leaders of America, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Operation Smile. Kelly said she is most like a frog because of her bubbly personality. Her escorts will be Wayne Joe Sooter and Nick Boggs.

Osborn participates in volleyball, basketball and track. She is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, FBLA, Operation Smile, the Book Club and Family, Community and Career Leaders of America. She said she is most like a monkey for having inherited the talent of picking up objects with her feet. Her escorts will be Curtis Palmer and Jason Cutbirth.

Madison Deems and Zach Crouch will serve as escorts for the queen. Jack Wrobleski will be the crown bearer, and Ella Wrobleski will be the flower girl. Both are children of Matt and Angela Wrobleski.

Other members of the royal court include junior attendant Kimberly Velten, daughter of Cris and Jake Velten. She will be escorted by Cody Fitchpatrick. Sophomore attendant Laney Parrigon, daughter of Vincent Parrigon and Nikki Crisp, will be escorted by Zach Hyde. Freshman attendant Whitny Willms, the daughter of Tracie Holland and Randall Willms, will be escorted by Travis Parrigon.

The royal court will be presented to the student body at the pep assembly at 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 16. Coronation ceremonies will be held at the football stadium at 6:20 p.m. A dance will immediately follow the football game in the high school cafeteria. Music will be provided by Slagle Sound Productions.

Folks, you better look up the slang definition of the theme - someone is pulling a fast one on administration.
