Students put on their dancing shoes and got red-carpet ready on Sat., Sept. 17, for the homecoming dance.

The dance took place in the Washburn Rural High School cafeteria, and to celebrate the 100th premier of the school, the theme was Hollywood.

Senior Megan Lucas enjoyed planning and attending her last homecoming dance.

My favorite part is definitely the spirit days. Walking through the hallways is something different and it’s always funny to see what people wear.”

“[My favorite part] was seeing it all come together after a long week of planning and spirit days,” Lucas said. “I got really good feedback this year [about the dance.]

As Co-Stuco President, Lucas was largely involved in the process of setting up the dance.

“There’s usually a group of Stuco members who have picked out various decorations, so we all turn to them to figure out where everything should go and how it all fits,” Lucas said. “It’s really just a team job of coming up with ideas. It’s kind of an all-hands-on-deck deal.”

The spirits days this year were dress like a teacher, favorite holiday, denim day, jersey day and separate movie genres for each of the grades on Friday.

“My favorite part is definitely the spirit days. Walking through the hallways is something different and it’s always funny to see what people wear,” said junior Alex Entz.

On Friday, students gathered outside to watch the homecoming parade, and the homecoming king and queen were announced at the football game against Shawnee Heights later that night.

The senior women candidates this year were Abby Glynn, Megan Lucas, Mariah Spangler, Kaitlyn Heistand, Darby Holroyd and Annalise Johansen.

The senior men candidates were Matt Wolfe, Luke Gomez, Tyler Cummings, Zach Wetzel, Charles Dilliehunt and Collin Hensyel.

Charles Dilliehunt and Darby Holroyd were crowned the King and Queen of the dance.

I was surprised, it’s a great privilege to win and I thank everyone for the support.”

“I was surprised, it’s a great privilege to win and I thank everyone for the support,” Dilliehunt said.

Junior Tyler Davis said he enjoyed the dance overall, but offered some critical comments.

“[The dance was] bad at first because everyone seemed unimpressed and didn’t dance, then the DJs really stepped up their game and the night got a whole lot better all the way until the end,” Davis said. “My favorite part was when they played the Cupid Shuffle and everyone danced.”
