COVID-19 has caused cancelations of celebrations across the area, but Morgan County was dedicated to continuing the traditions of homecoming including hosting the annual parade and crowning its king and queen, despite not having a homecoming dance.
The traditions began with Spirit Week, which included for the first time a digital learning pajama day where students did school work at home. Spirit Week dress up days were not confined to the high school this year. All four of the county’s schools participated with parents posting pictures on social media. Other Spirit Week dress up days included: character day, western day, decade day and spirit day.
Levi Darnell was crowned homecoming king and Jessy Young was crowned homecoming queen. The MCHS Bulldogs also pulled out a win over Lakeside, 41-7.
“We got a KING. We got a QUEEN. We got a WIN! Homecoming 2020 has been a success,” said a post on the Morgan County High School Athletics Facebook page.
