One of the most anticipated events of the entire school year at West Lincoln is Homecoming. Every day had a different theme during “Rebel Pride Week” and the students dressed up for each day.
Rebel Pride Week at West Lincoln started out on Monday with Music Monday, Tuesday was As Seen On TV, Wednesday students displayed different cultures from Around The World, Thursday was Group Day, and then Friday was the traditional Rowdy Rebel Day.
The annual Homecoming Parade was held on Wednesday, October 17 at 6 p.m. through Downtown Cat Square. It might have been one of the shorter parades seen along this route but it had to be the most spirited with homecoming attendants, football players, cheerleaders, the marching band and many school organizations taking part.
One of the highlights of the week was the Tractor Parade on the track around the football field at West Lincoln before school on Friday morning.
Lots of friends, family, former alumni and West Lincoln football fans filled the stadium on Friday night to support their Rebels for the Homecoming game and halftime ceremonies. The Marching Rebels performed their competition show after the game.
