The Homecoming ceremonies Friday night turned out well. After the Lady Hornets’ game, Colten Baylus and Nicole Hall were named Basketball Beau and Sweetheart. Miller Grove won all their basketball games against CHESS.
After the final game the Homecoming Court was announced by Mr. Larry Slatter. Colten Baylus and Holly Miller were crowned 2011-2012 Homecoming King and Queen by last year’s king (Alex Craze) and first runner-up for queen (Jena Burns). Last Year’s queen, Hege Melby, wasn’t able to return to the U.S. for Homecoming. She had other engagements in her home country (the Netherlands). This year’s first runners-up were Matthew Gifford and Nicole Hall. Second runners-up were Hunter Darrow and Neida Resendiz. Congratulations to each of these young men and women.
Although the Homecoming was successful, I wish I could say the same about the alumni “Meet and Greet.” We had a few folks come, visit and snack on the food that we had. But there were several people’s faces that were missing from this year’s audience. I could think of quite a few people that I usually see at Homecoming that were not there this year. I’m sure people had other plans and previous engagements. Maybe we will try the “Meet and Greet” again next year. But I was glad to see all of the alumni that did show up.
The other day I learned that Lewis Russell received second place in the men’s category at the 6th Annual Crockpot Chili Contest at the Hopkins County Civic Center in Sulphur Springs on Jan. 14. I knew Lewis was a good hand at making stew, but I didn’t know he was good at making chili.
Faye Tipps was terribly sick this weekend. She went by ambulance to the hospital where she was admitted. She came home Sunday and is beginning to feel a little better. I hope she has a speedy recovery.
Happy birthday this week to Mary Lou (Woods) Hoover on Jan. 14, Misty Briggs and Charliegh Smith on Jan. 16, Dalyn (Petty) Beck and Clark May on Jan. 17, Melanie (Lynn) Clem and Hope Garrett on Jan. 19, June Watson and James Ragan on Jan. 20, and Cheri Tipps on Jan. 21.
Next Wednesday (Jan. 25) will be the second annual Miller Grove Science Fair. Students’ projects will be displayed up and down the high school hallways from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Anyone in the community is welcome to drop by and see all of the projects.
