Homecoming is the tradition of welcoming back students of a school. It is a tradition in many high schools in the United States, and as we know, it's no small thing in Texas.
This week, the University Trojans celebrate their homecoming with style. Throughout the week they have held special Dress-up days, including Dress for the Future Day where students could draw from any era and dress in the style of the times, and NEON Day where students could wear a specific neon color shirt representing their graduating class.
It all comes down to the big day itself, Friday, Game Day. Many events are scheduled throughout the day starting with a Pep Rally in the afternoon.
Just before kickoff at Friday Night's Football game, two lucky UHS students will be selected from a list of student chosen nominees to become the 2016 UHS Homecoming King and Queen. The Homecoming Queen nominees are Guadalupe Aguilar, Jennifer Chavez, Adriana May, and Taylor Simmons. The King nominees include Ray Estelle, Alex Perez, Victor Perez, and Diego Salazar.
The Homecoming Dance will be from 8:00-11:00 PM Saturday, October 1, in the UHS cafeteria. We'll have a D-J, concessions for sale, presentation of the Homecoming Court, and recognition of underclassmen Princes and Princesses.
Cost is $5 at the door.
Only current UHS students may attend.
Dress is casual but must meet UHS/WISD dress code regulations.
Students must be picked up and off campus by 11:15 PM.
