Homecoming festivities concluded Friday night at Staples Stadium with a big bang as the Braves knocked off Jordan 54-7.

Of course it was also Homecoming week for the Brave Nation, so more was on the agenda Friday than just football. The large crowd packed into Staples Stadium not only for the game but to see which one of the Seniors would be crowned the 2012 Homecoming Queen.

The Class of 2013 nominated six outstanding girls for the honor and the entire school voted for their favorite. Without a doubt this year’s decision was a very difficult one. The six girls nominated to this year’s court were Gracie Rowe, Taylor Wiggins, Sara Gac, Jasmine Cook, Tyesha Wright, and Hayley Parker.

The home crowd became electrified when the announcement was made that Ms. Jasmine Cook was the new Queen. She was crowned as the new 2012 Heard High Homecoming  Queen by the 2011 Queen Ms. Katie Lego. Jasmine was very excited and honored to be chosen as this year’s queen by her fellow students.

She is not only a highly decorated Brave Nation athlete but also a great student and representative of the Senior Class in all areas. Ms. Gracie Rowe was awarded 1st Runner-Up and Sara Gac was voted as 2nd Runner-Up. Congrats to all of the girls for being such great representatives this year.

At the big community homecoming pep rally held in the high school gymnasium Friday afternoon, Mr. Dillian Bradley, a captain on the Braves defense, was named as the 2012 Homecoming King.

Bradley, a leader on the field and off , is known by his peers as one of the hardest working Brave athletes not only on the field during the season but also off the field in the weight room. First Runner-Up was awarded to Mr. Qua Reid and Second Runner-Up was Mr. Corey Freeman.

Also during the game Friday night, the homecoming parade winners were announced. The parade, which took place on the square Thursday afternoon under sunny skies for a change, was a fun event enjoyed by all.

In the community categories, the 7-8 Braves football team won best float, while Junior Miss Heard Elementary Logan Dawson won best car. In the school division, FBLA won best car and FFA won best float.

It was certainly an exciting event and night for Heard High School and the Brave Nation. Congrats to all the wonderful participants in this year’s homecoming festivities!
