Before school even let out for summer break, Clover Hill High School's SCA had already announced plans to make this year’s homecoming the best one yet. Inspired by the tradition and carnival atmosphere of homecomings in classic small towns, the SCA will be the first to actively encourage all members of the Brandermill community to participate in the celebration of the school's tradition and spirit.
The Friday, September 28 homecoming event will offer fun for all ages, kicking off at 5:30 p.m. with the largest parade in school history. Starting at the front of the school at 13301 Kelly Green Lane, parade participants will turn left onto Kelly Green Drive, then left on Kelly Green Lane, and conclude at the CHHS Cavalier Football Stadium.
With the homecoming theme being Mardi Gras this year, residents can expect to see: 20 floats and cars draped as representations of New Orleans; the award-winning Marching Cavalier Band; mascots; sports teams; and numerous students and organizations. As the parade comes to an end, the festivities will continue in the bus loop where a tailgate party will be held. Food, music, and traditional tailgating games will be provided to build up school spirit before the game begins.
At 7:30 p.m., all attention will turn to the stadium where the Cavaliers take on George Wythe High School. From the action of the game to the precision of the band, the night will continue to entertain.
At half time, the homecoming court will be crowned as the band, cheerleaders and dance team continue to keep everyone excited and full of school pride. “This year, we really want to incorporate the entire Cavalier community by inviting not just current and former Cavs, but all of the people—young and old—who have supported us,” says CHHS SCA Vice President Jackson Nell. “It will truly be a great time to showcase the talent and pride of our area.”
