Senior Court selected for Homecoming 2020 being celebrated at Waukon High School this week ...

Students at Waukon High School have selected their Homecoming Court representatives for 2020, with the coronation of this year's Homecoming Queen and King set to take place at the "Burning of the 'W'" pep rally scheduled for this Thursday evening, September 17, beginning at 7 p.m. This year’s event will be held outside at the Waukon High School track/football stadium, with masks and social distancing encouraged. Following the outdoor pep rally, all attending are asked to remain in the stadium stands while the newly crowned King and Queen light the “W” at its traditional location just south of the football field. In the event of inclement weather, the “Burning of the ‘W’” pep rally will not be held.

Pictured in the photo above are this year's Waukon High School Homecoming Queen and King candidates from the 2020-2021 Senior class, including: Left to right - Front row: Queen candidates Olivia Byrnes, Grace Pearson, Lainey Erdmann and Mia Strub; Back row: King candidates Ethan O’Neill, Creed Welch, Sean Cooper and Walker Hermeier. It was decided by school district administration that there would not be any Homecoming attendants selected from this year’s freshman, sophomore or junior classes. That decision was made in an effort to try and limit the number of individuals gathering for such an event in accordance with mitigation guidelines in regard to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The parade route for this Friday's Homecoming Parade at 2 p.m. will begin at the Waukon Banquet Center parking lot in south Waukon and end at the Waukon High School parking lot, traveling from the Waukon Banquet Center up Rossville Road/Spring Avenue to its stoplight intersection with Main Street before heading west to Sixth Street NW, north past East Elementary School to Third Avenue NW and then west up to the Waukon High School. There will be no candy thrown during this year’s parade and float entries will be limited in the number of participants who may ride.
