A Look Back at Homecoming ’17

This year’s homecoming week was one to remember. The week included dress up days, volleyball games, a cross country meet, a pep-rally, and an Eagle football victory over High Plains.

Some kids enjoyed the dress up days that the student council chose for each day. Senior Katelynn Halstead said, “The homecoming days were certainly unique and made for some very creative costumes!”

Tuesday, students dressed up for the theme of “Ag” day.

Each class was assigned a movie for Wednesday.

Thursday, students paired up with each other and became dynamic duos.

Finally, on the last day, students came to school decked out in their blue and white to flaunt their school pride.

The faculty chose winners for the first three days. On Tuesday, Anna Musgrave took the W with the creative idea of an organic produce booth. The seniors took the crown on Wednesday, adorning themselves in Star Wars apparel. The staff chose Curt Bailey, dressed as Bilbo Baggins from Lord of the Rings, as the individual winner for that day. Garrett Nokelby and Kalob Green, dressed as a cop and robber, won Thursday’s dress up day with ease.

The student council hosted a pep-rally Thursday afternoon. They introduced the teams for the fall sports, played a game of charades, and ended with a game of dodge ball for all to enjoy.

At the Friday night football game vs. High Plains, all music alumni were invited to sing the national anthem with the current ensemble. The Eagles ended up winning the game 50-16, and, despite the miserable weather, the alumni in attendance enjoyed reconnecting with each other and experiencing the game.


Following the game, the Senior Class of 2018 was recognized in the gym.

Two classes also held reunions during the weekend. The reunions held included the class of ’97 and ’77. Each class was able to take a tour of the school and see some of the new facilities at the school. The class of ’97 had a cookout Saturday for lunch, reminisced over their high school yearbooks, and ended their reunion with a Husker party that night.

Homecoming 2017 was a time where graduates reminisced over the memories they made throughout their time here at Nebraska Christian. It allowed them to catch up with their classmates and share about their life now. The week also allowed current students to make memories throughout the fun-filled week.
