Panthers rout South Shelby; face Centralia next

Senior Landon Holland leads his fellow teammates on to the field at Friday night’s homecoming game.

Members of the Monroe City R-1 senior class of 2023 decided to use a specific classic-rock music band as the motif for their float in this year’s homecoming parade.

The name of the band is Kiss. The seniors’ slogan was “Kiss the Cardinals Goodbye.” The float displayed an impressive depiction of the band’s bass guitar player, Gene Simmons.
