Homecoming week at Centennial High School was a huge hit, drawing almost double the crowd from previous years.

The festivities began on Monday, September 19 with a hallway decorating contest and a week of spirit days. Many CHS football players, cheerleaders, and band members visited our feeder elementary schools Esther Jackson, Hillside, and River Eves during carpool to get them pumped up about being future Knights. Friday night was the Homecoming community parade and food truck event along with a 35-14 win for the Centennial football team against Cambridge High School.

The 2016 Homecoming Queen and King, seniors Lourdes Tyler and Connor Evans were also crowned at halftime of the football game. The week culminated in the school’s Homecoming dance held in the cafeteria on Saturday, September 23, 2016.

Attendance at the Homecoming dance also brought in record numbers of students, who stayed to the very end of the event. The greater ticket sales translated into a large endowment to the school’s Executive Council Scholarship. Several years ago, Centennial decided to use the profits from ticket sales to fund as many $500 college scholarships as possible. What started as four scholarships has now grown to twenty for the 2016-2017 school year.

Centennial wishes to thank everyone involved in the community for contributing to the success of Homecoming week. We can’t wait until Homecoming 2017!!
