Senior Court selected for Homecoming at Waukon High School...

Students at Waukon High School have selected their Homecoming Court representatives for the 2023 celebration, with the coronation of this year's Homecoming Queen and King scheduled to take place at the "Burning of the W" pep rally scheduled for this Thursday evening, September 21, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Waukon High School gym. Pictured in the photo above are this year's Waukon High School Homecoming Queen and King candidates from the 2023-2024 Senior class, including: Left to right - Front row: Queen candidates Cameron Johnson, Lynsey Houg, Azlynn Cota, Olivia Bossom; Back row: King candidates Wyatt Gulla, Jack O’Neill, Dylan Hogan, Jacob Courtney.

It should be noted that the pep rally will take place this Thursday evening, as scheduled, but there will be no traditional burning of the “W” at the end of the rally due to the ban on open burning currently in place within Allamakee County.

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 north up Rossville Road/Spring Avenue to the stoplight intersection with Main Street before turning left and heading west to Sixth Street NW, then north past East Elementary School to Third Avenue NW and then west up to the Waukon High School. Additional information about the Homecoming Week festivities in the Allamakee Community School District this week, along with celebratory pages, can be found on Pages 15 through 17 in the Wednesday, September 20, 2023 print edition and e-edition of the Standard.
