Kick off assembly previews Homecoming activities


Kathryn Campbell

After a video short introducing the Homecoming Game challenger, Spartan Tommy Verhey got the crowd on their feet for the first “Spartan Beat” of Homecoming.

The Huss auditorium filled with laughter, applause, (and students) this morning for the Homecoming kick-off assembly, led by SAC co-Presidents Ali Browne and Hobbs Lillygreen. US Interim Principal Ken Jaffee led senior volunteers in a round of Simon Says, and history teacher Jon Peterson educated everyone in his “walk and talk” visual demonstration of the rules of dodgeball.
