The AHS lobby was transformed to a land of trees, greenery, and ferns to fit the theme of this year’s Homecoming dance, “Journey to the Jungle.”
There were tikis and life-size animals including a rhino, lion, zebra, and gorilla. Construction Trades students under the direction of Mr. Chris Felger built a working waterfall.
The king and queen were crowned at the Homecoming game against Salem, which the Aviators won with a score of 70-40. Tony Young was crowned king and Morgan Davis queen.
Senior attendants on the court were Char’Metria Threats and Poppy Stovall. Other members of the court included juniors Dynasty Ford and James Gray, Jr.; sophomores Savannah Heller and Jeff Talbert, and freshmen Kayla Martin and Kyler Cameron.
Homecoming had an amazing turnout and many students said it was a night to remember. Student Senate advisors Mrs. Nicolle Boehm and Mrs. Elizabeth Davis said that nearly 475 students attended the dance on Saturday night. AHS graduate Carson Parmenter, aka “DJ Head Trauma,” provided the music.
Members of Student Senate decorated Friday night from 7 to 11 p.m. and began again at 8 a.m. Saturday morning. Many hours were put into transforming the lobby, hallways and gym to match the theme.
