              Congratulations Kevin.
              That is so boss.
              What is your title in Homecoming?
              Make sure you take some pictures to share with us.
              My school has homecoming virtually every league game.
              We lose almost every game we play, so other schools schedule us for homecoming, to keep their alumni happy.

              History of Homecoming
              LINK
              Homecoming is an annual tradition of the United States. People, towns, high schools and colleges come together, usually in late September or October, to welcome back former residents and alumni. It is built around a central event, such as a banquet or a game of American football, basketball, or ice hockey. When celebrated by schools, the activities vary widely. However, they usually consist of a football game played on the school's home football field, activities for students and alumni, a parade featuring the school's marching band, and the coronation of a Homecoming Queen (and at many schools, a Homecoming King). Related "Homecoming Dances" can be either boy ask girl or Sadie Hawkins style.


              Homecoming Queen and King

              The Homecoming Court usually consists of seniors. In high school, 16- or 17-year-old students in their final year are represented; in college, students who are completing their final year of study, usually between 21 and 23 years old.
              Classmates traditionally nominate students who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to contribute to their school. Other times, students vote for the the nominees. Once the Homecoming Court candidates are announced, the entire student body votes for the Queen and King (by secret ballot).
              Local rules determine when the Homecoming Queen and King are crowned. Sometimes, the big announcement comes at a pep rally or school assembly one or more days before the game. Other schools crown their royalty at the Homecoming football game or dance or Basketball game.
              Often, the previous year's Queen and King are invited back to crown their successors. If they are absent for whatever reason, someone else – usually, another previous Queen or King, a popular teacher, or other designated person – will perform those duties. Usually, the Queen is crowned first, followed by the King (for schools that have both kings and queens). The crowning method also varies by school.
              Homecoming court members who are not crowned king or queen are often called escorts or royalty . They are often expected to participate in the week's activities as well. At some schools, a Homecoming Prince/Princess, Duke/Duchess etc. (often underclassmen nominated by their classmates) are crowned along with the King and Queen; sometimes, middle school and junior high students may partake in the high school activities.

                      Congratulations, Kevin. I think that's fantastic. A friend of ours was homecoming queen at my kids' high school last year. She had a blast with it, and all of us got to share it with her.

                      Live it up!

                        I've never heard of this tradition before, but I trust you to abuse your authority and seize power eternally in the name of Sinister. Good luck!

                              Way to go Kevin and good luck . My daughter's friends are trying to get her nominated, but she is resisting . She see's herself as the
                              athlete type and not the beauty queen type... I try to sway her to be
                              both .
