The student body vote gave Jess Greiman and Emilie Okenfuss the royalty titles of King and Queen as the Monroe City High School held their annual Basketball Homecoming on January 12.
The Panthers hosted Clark County for the event. Senior Tim Dennison sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” prior to the beginning of the games as others sitting in the stands were heard commented on how talented Dennison.
The Monroe City Dance Team, coached by Kari Williams, performed a well-rehearsed performance between the two varsity games. This year’s homecoming theme was “Habitats” where Monroe City Panthers thrive in all habitats. The winners of the hallway competition were announced at the game. The freshman won first place with underwater decorations. Second place was awarded to the seniors displaying the arctic. The junior class placed third with their hallway decked in the jungle attire. Fourth place was given to the sophomores with the beach scene. As people walked through the halls there were tropical plants and vines hanging from the ceiling to create a rain forest along with snow in the front lobby. Those attending the game could stop outside the gym hallway in the photo booth to grab a few selfies in celebration.
Homecoming would not be completed without royalty.
