Corvettes will roll, queen candidates will wave and fanatic fans will dress in Olympic orange Friday during homecoming at the Columbus East High School football game.
Then there’s that little matter of beating the Floyd Central Highlanders.
Students will be looking forward to every bit of it this week as they gear up for festivities during and after the homecoming football game.
Online voting, open to East students only, is taking place all week, social studies teacher and event sponsor Jeffrey Thomas said. Forty-two students in Grades 9 to 12 were chosen for the homecoming court. Those consist of five boys and five girls in Grades 9, 11 and 12, and of six boys and six girls in Grade 10 because of a tie.
As per tradition, the Columbus Corvette Club will chauffeur the queen candidates along the track that surrounds the football field while the king candidates walk beside them, Thomas said.
Only seniors are eligible to be crowned king and queen, which will happen during halftime of the football game.
East’s homecoming dance will be Saturday night at Southside Elementary School, Thomas said.
The dance will be informal and have a black-light theme. Students will be encouraged to wear white and neon colors.
