Student Council seniors Dexter Mitchell, Sydney Stafford and Tamia Hatcher shout for a video of the “Hawk Pride Never Dies” chant. The video will be a clip in the virtual homecoming pep rally to be held on Nov. 13.

Student Council announced its plans for celebrating homecoming at Hebron this fall amidst the COVID-19 pandemic via an Instagram post on Oct. 15. 

“We won’t be doing a homecoming dance, but we’ll still do the decorations and dress up days,” Student Council President Courtney Case said. “We will have a reverse parade; the floats will be stationary and cars will drive past the [floats]. And we’ll have a community pep rally after that night. So we’re still going to do everything [homecoming-related], except for the dance.”

Student Council is also planning a virtual pep rally where organizations like Silver Wings, cheerleading, and ROTC will be able to film clips of their performances to be put together into a video for the student body to experience virtually. 

It’s just a way to get everybody some school spirit while being separated and socially distanced because we won’t be able to do pep rallies,” Case said. “It’s also a chance for the cheerleaders and Silver Wings to perform, so we’re just going to make sure everyone can participate in those.”

As a senior, Case wanted to prioritize Ruckus and Rowdy, and made sure football games were still going to happen since school spirit means a lot to her. 

“It’s just really different this year,” Case said. “It’s kind of sad being a senior, because I was looking forward to lots of things. I just want to make sure I still have the best senior year possible, even though it’ll be different, especially with homecoming.”
