Friday is homecoming for Cougars

Costumes, global-themed decorations and school spirit have filled the halls of Pulaski County High School this week in recognition of the school’s 2008 Homecoming.
This year’s homecoming theme, “Cougars Take On the World,” should explain the global decorations filling the school’s halls. As part of the week’s activities, each grade level used the theme as inspiration to decorate their respective section of locker banks.
Each class focused on one specific country in their decorative endeavors, including Germany (freshmen), France (sophomores), Mexico (juniors) and Greece (seniors).
As for costumes, each day of the week was designated as a different “dress up” day.
On Monday, students could come straight from bed to the classroom, as it was themed “Pajama Day.”
Tuesday, the school was much more vibrant than usual for “Color Day,” in which each class wore a different color. Freshmen wore yellow, sophomores donned green, juniors were clad in red, and the seniors sported blue.
Wednesday allowed the students to show off their tough and rustic side for “Camo Day.”
In addition, many of the female juniors and seniors wore football jerseys on Wednesday in anticipation of the annual powder puff football game. Wednesday night, the two classes went head-to-head, with the seniors ending the night on a victorious note, with a 40-22 win.
Today, the students were encouraged to dress for the “Cougars Take on the World” theme, so togas, sombreros and berets were expected to be seen throughout the school’s campus.
Friday will be “School Spirit Day,” with maroon and gold (the school’s official colors), being the most popular colors of the day.
On Friday afternoon, a pep rally will be held in the gymnasium at PCHS. During this time, athletes will be recognized, the cheerleaders will perform cheers and stunts, and with the help of the Golden Cougar Marching Band, a spirit competition will take place among all four classes.
In addition to the spirit competition, class winners of the locker banks decorations will be announced.
The 2008 Homecoming Court will also make an appearance at tomorrow’s pep rally.
This year, the 10 seniors in running for the title of homecoming queen are Ashley Alley, Brittany Burton, Allison Clark, Lindsay Clark, Hunter Craft, Kari Ray Dunavant, Emily Landreth, Shauna Rutherford, Alison Sutphin and Paige Waddell.
The 10 seniors nominated for homecoming king are Jared Cole, Korey Dickerson, E.J. Dobbins, Brett Graham, Brandon Hazzard, Langston Lewis, Seth Parris, Nubian Peak, Zane Quesenberry and Carter White.
The entire student body at PCHS will vote for one male and one female from the Homecoming Court.
Votes will be tallied and homecoming royalty — including duke and duchess, prince and princess, and king and queen — will be announced during halftime of the Homecoming varsity football game on Friday.
The game, which is against Salem High School, will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Kenneth J. Dobson Stadium.
The annual homecoming dance will be held Saturday night in the PCHS gymnasium, starting at 8 p.m.
