Hundreds of people lined Main Street Thursday to cheer on the Montezuma-Cortez High School homecoming parade.
The district’s schools were represented, the marching band played, and student groups and athletic teams paraded on creative floats. The theme was “Under the Glowing Sea.”
“It’s great to see all the support for the kids,” said Re-1 District Superintendent Tom Burris. “It’s a big deal.”
Homecoming is Sept. 30. The MCHS Panthers (4-1) will go up against the Salida Spartans (3-2). Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Panther Stadium.
Homecoming royalty will be announced at the game.
Senior royalty candidates are Madi Carver, Emma Olsen and Willa Rice, and Dorrian Hillard, Max Howell and Isaak Lewis.
Royalty for the junior class are India Wright and Miles Frost; for the sophomores Kenzi Whipple and Brady Dale; and for the freshmen Aubrie Matthias and Issac Dozal Escarcega.
