Westwood Homecoming week celebrated, royalty crowned

Garrett Sutton and Amelia Peters were crowned Homecoming King and Queen at a volleyball game between Westwood and Herlong Thursday evening, Oct. 10. The ceremony was held during girls varsity volleyball because injuries ended the Lumberjack’s football season early.

The honor of Homecoming Prince went to seniors Garrett Sutton (selected as Homecoming King), left, and Noah Schriver, junior Dale Fawver, sophomore Carson Gibbs and freshman Kasen Gunn.

In keeping with tradition, there was a “volleybuff” game instead of the “powderpuff football” game that usually takes place during Homecoming Week.

During the week all students on the combined campus of Fletcher Walker Elementary and Westwood High were invited to participate in Dress-up Days. Elementary students received a lollipop for their participation, and students at the high school level competed as a class to win the Spirit Axe. Monday, Oct. 7 was Pajama Day, Oct. 8 was Twinning Tuesday, Oct. 9 Wilderness Wednesday, Oct. 10 was Thursdays Nerds Day and Friday, Oct. 11 was Pride Red & Black Day.


The honor of Homecoming Princess went to freshman Jeris Stevens, left, sophomore Kori Duerksen, junior Cleta Tirey, and seniors Amelia Peters and Destiney Pemberton-Bennett. Peters was crowned Homecoming Queen.

Sections of the school campus were decorated with the seniors working on the front entrance way; juniors occupied the hallway by the district office; the sophomores had the multi-purpose room; the freshmen desgined the hallway by the ag science classroom; and the junior high decorated the hallway by the restrooms.
