WDC names 2015 Homecoming candidates
Selected by their senior classmates, the 2015 Wadena-Deer Creek Homecoming candidates were announced the morning!
The queen candidates are: Madison Barthel, Jessica Langer, Athea Perez, Lauren Soroko and Hannah Vorderbruggen. The king candidates are: Thomas Brekke, Wyatt Fitzsimmons, Keon Woo “Jimmy” Kim, Jarrett Pettit and Austin Sutherland.
An array of activities -- organized by WDC's student councils -- will take place during the week of Sept. 28 to Oct. 2, including dress-up days for students and staff, PowderPuff football, pep fests, wagon parade and more! Friday will feature the Coronation at 10:15 am in the Middle/High School Gym. The public is invited to attend this ceremony. On Friday afternoon, the Homecoming “Wagon” Parade will begin at 2 p.m. This is a new event this year. Due to road construction downtown, the traditional parade had to be cancelled, but a wagon train in the WDC Elementary hallways will be a fun, spirited event for students! Rain or shine, this parade will go on!
This year’s Homecoming theme is “Corral the Cardinals!” Show your Wolverine spirit by wearing Blue and Gold when the football team hosts Staples-Motley at 7 p.m. at the WDC High School football field.
