Tigers fired up for Homecoming

It's been 10 years since the Luverne High School Class of 1995 had its Homecoming.

Friday, the group of alumni will help the Class of 2005 and the rest of Luverne's student body celebrate their Homecoming as the school's honored guest during the day's festivities.

"We honor the class returning for their 10-year reunion every year during Homecoming activities," Homecoming committee member Tammy Alford said. "People look forward to it many years prior to their reunion. It provides an opportunity for classmates to reunite and reminisce."

A reception will get things started at 10 a.m. in the high school library. A formal presentation of the queen and her court will follow at

11 a.m. in the gymnasium.

Luverne's Homecoming Queen is Haley Williams. Williams, a senior, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mack Williams. Members of her court include, senior attendant Miss Lakenya May, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nelson May; junior attendant Miss Mallory McDougald, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William McDougald; sophomore attendant Miss Charday Jackson, daughter of Ms. Helen Williams and freshman attendant Miss Courtney Williams, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Denny Williams. Scepter bearer is Little Miss Savannah Jones, daughter of Tiffany and Greg Jones and crown bearer is Master Payton Owens, son of Mr. and Mrs. Geoffrey Owens.

Football sweethearts include Stacy Williamson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Williamson and Areka Smith, daughter of Carol Parks and Wendell Smith. The sweethearts are members of the senior class and were selected by the LHS football team.

Football spirits are Little Miss Alexia Jones, daughter of Ms. Tara E. Jones and Master La'Darion Harrell, son of Eric and Lawanda Harrell.

The homecoming parade will begin at 1:30 p.m.

The returning class will be served hors d'oeuvres prior to the Tigers' game with B.B. Comer. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
