(Franklin) — Heard County High School’s annual homecoming week celebration is coming up this week, and will feature several traditional events for both students and the local community.

The homecoming football game will take place this Friday, September 18 when the Braves take on the Cedartown Bulldogs. The theme for this year is “Land of the Free, Home of the Braves.”

Highlighting the week-long festivities will be the crowning of the 2015 Homecoming Queen during halftime of the game and the crowning of the Homecoming King during a special assembly Friday afternoon in the HHS gymnasium.

The HHS homecoming court consists of six senior females and six senior males, as well as one female and one male representative from the freshmen, sophomore, and junior classes.

This year’s female court includes seniors Kaci Fowler, Madelyn Rusinyak, Madison Jones, Kirsten Johnson, Angel North, Anna Shelnutt, freshmen representative Katelyn Duncan, sophomore representative Shylie Richards, and junior representative Heaven Jackson.

The male court includes seniors Christian Merrill, Chandler Polk, Andrew Cannon, Austin Barron, Matt Brown, Hunter Lane, freshman representative Gage Cannon, sophomore representative Matthew Nilsen, and  junior representative Christian Murray.

The dress up days for homecoming week are one of the more popular aspects for students and include ‘Merica Monday, Tie-Dye Tuesday, Throwback Thursday, and Brave Spirit Friday.

Wednesday is “Character Day” where students are encouraged to dress as their favorite movie/television actor or other entertainer.

The biggest event for the children in the community is the annual Homecoming Parade which takes place Thursday afternoon at 4:30 on the square in Franklin.

The grand marshall for this year’s parade will be Chamber of Commerce President Kathy Knowles.
