Bomber Spirit is soaring this week as students at Edon Northwest Local Schools enjoy the arrival of Homecoming 2014. The exciting week-long celebration, filled with an array of fun-filled activities, culminates September 19 when the Blue Bombers take on the Danbury Lakers in gridiron action beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Friday night’s “Toon into a Bomber Victory” takes flight with the Edon High School Marching Band, under the direction of Ms. Christa Perry, stepping off at 6:10 p.m., piloting the Homecoming Parade to Leanne Field where excited, charged students and fans eagerly await. Upon arrival, in time-honored tradition, senior football players Heath Brown, son of Bert and Lori Brown; Luke Price, son of Ray and Teresa Price; Kaden Sapp son of Kyle and Stacy Sapp; Kenny Ordway, son of Chad and Mary Ordway; Jordan Stuart, son of Jason Stuart and Debbie Derck; Cameron Castillo, son of Toby Castillo and Amanda Decker and Brendan Fifer, son of Rick and Jackie Fifer, will accompany the Queen and Court throughout Pre-Game and Crowning Ceremonies.
Chosen by the EHS student body to reign as 2014 Homecoming Queen is senior Alexandra Kiess, daughter of Andrew and Carey Kiess. Completing her Court are Senior Attendant Kaitlin Chrisman, daughter of Greg and Tammy Chrisman; Junior Attendant Kaela Gearhart, daughter of Andy and Kerri Gearhart; Sophomore Attendant Samantha Trausch, daughter of Mark and Tina Trausch and Freshman Attendant Jacklyn Dargitz, daughter of Timothy Dargitz and Laura Pierce. Rebecca Waters, daughter of Misty Rice, will serve as the Queen’s Flower Girl while Aricin Rodriguez, son of Troy and Haley Rodriguez, will be her Crown Bearer. Presiding over the memorable occasion will be 2013 Homecoming Queen Jordan Matthews, daughter of Jessica Matthews.
Once teams head to the locker room, Halftime Ceremonies take center stage as the Homecoming Court is proudly escorted by cherished family members across the field, surrounded by the velvety melodious sounds of the EHS Marching Band echoing all through the stadium. Queen Alexandra will pause to address the students, Alumni, family and friends before she and her court resume cheering on the Bombers for the remainder of the game.
While a Bomber victory would certainly top off the night for devoted fans, “Toon into a Bomber Victory” festivities are set to take up again the following evening at Edon Schools Auditeria. From 8:00-11:00 p.m., Saturday, September 20, Queen Alex, Courtiers Kaitlin, Kaela, Samantha and Jacklyn, along with EHS students and guests, will dance the night away at the semi-formal event hosted by the Class of 2016. Entertainment will be provided by FoxTunes Entertainment.
The EHS Junior Class cordially invites all students, parents, alumni and friends to join them in celebrating Homecoming 2014 at Edon High School.
