Warren County High School’s week of homecoming celebration culminates today with a parade, pep rally and football game. The festivities begin at 1:30 p.m. 

Seniors are aiming for a win, with a tank. 

“They have been working really hard on this float,” said Sherry Burnett, senior float sponsor. “There have been nights when I have to say ‘go home’ because they are still here. I can’t go home until they go home.” 

It is estimated that 100 seniors have been participating since the end of August.

“They have to work at least six hours in order to ride it during the parade,” said Burnett. “That doesn’t sound like much, but some of these students are far in excess of that.” 

One of those is Abbigale Judkins.

“I’m over 30 hours. Probably 35,” she said. “I think there’s a pretty good chance that we will win. It looks really good. We’re putting the final touches on it.”

Ashlyn Reagan stated, “I’ve worked on it almost every day. My dad has been helping.”

“My dad is also helping,” said Dallis Melton. “We’ve been wanting to do a tank and finally got to do it. I definitely think we will win this year.” 

Lineup for the parade will begin at noon on West Colville Street. The parade begins at 1:30 p.m. and runs the length of Main Street. 

A Pioneer pep rally will be held on The Lot immediately following the parade. It begins at approximately 2 p.m. 

The football game begins at 7 p.m. at Nunley Stadium. The Warren County Pioneers face off against the Coffee County Red Raiders.
