Back by popular demand, the homecoming dance will be held on October 28 from 8 to 11 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. This homecoming dance is a celebration of the unity and resilience of students these past months. Along with socializing, dancing, and taking pictures, there will also be door prizes given away every 30 minutes. The semi-formal dance will center around the homecoming parade theme, “Texas Strong”. The entry fee is $10.

The entry-fee money is cycled back to students through a scholarship founded by Coach Radford and her family in memory of her late father.

“My family has put together a scholarship in my father’s name,” Radford said. “We have given away about $38,000. Part of the money raised will be put into that.”

The dance this year is a celebration of being strong through the storms of life.

“When you end up Saturday night at the end of the homecoming and the end of the Texas Strong, you end up in the heart of Texas,” Radford said.

Radford predicts a larger turnout than the previous year because there are more students expressing interest in going and helping.

“This year there is a level of excitement and a level of anticipation because a lot more kids are ready to be a part of it,” Radford said. “I want it to be a success; I am hoping that this is becomes an annual event,” Radford said.

The tennis team heads this event is seeking all creative people and helpers for decorating.

“This is for the kids. This is [your] dance, not mine,” says Radford.
