Homecoming, Ike, And Jackie

We had Homecoming last night at WCS. This is about our big event nine years ago delayed by a natural disaster! It is from November 2, 2008.
Our Homecoming football game was supposed to be played on Friday, September 12. There was a minor inconvenience, locally referred to as Ike, which required the moving of the big date to this past Friday night. On an absolutely gorgeous evening, our Wildcats beat FBBA 35-0 to keep our playoff hopes alive! Seniors Jasmine Mathews and Kevin Perry were elected Queen and King by the student body and wore their crowns with regal splendor. As you can tell, many of our kids came with painted faces to cheer our squad on to victory. The bottom shot is of Jackie Marini, senior cheerleader and Queen candidate. Jackie, even though she did not wear the tiara on Friday, is a princess. Several years ago, we had an incident develop one morning. The situation involved property of Jackie's that went missing and was recovered in the locker of another student. Sometimes, first glances are deceiving and this was one of those occasions. The other student had very innocently moved Jackie's belongings to protect them but at first blush, it looked bad. Jackie went to bat for her classmate and was instrumental in keeping him from a possible suspension from school. Psalm 106 speaks of Moses intervening on behalf of the Israelites before the Lord and it making a difference. On that day, Jackie was a difference maker. Every other day, she's just one terrific young lady.

Applicable quote of the day:
"Because homecoming came first, there was the homecoming court. The five guys on homecoming court were disqualified from being in the prom court. So being prom king was being sixth most popular."
