Horizon Community Learning Center (HCLC) was buzzing during homecoming weekend.

Students packed the gymnasium during Friday’s assembly, where the homecoming court was honored.

Connor Pendleton said he was honored to be nominated for homecoming king, and was looking forward to making memories with his friends during Saturday night’s dance.

“You get to see a side of people you don’t usually see at school, and everyone kind of comes together and has fun together,” Pendleton said. “It’s really cool to see that one last time before I go.”

Andria Vitagliano said she was looking forward to celebrating her last homecoming as a Horizon Eagle, and felt honored to be nominated.

The homecoming court was not the only honors handed out during Friday’s homecoming assembly.

Jen Wood, secondary humanities teacher, received a My Teacher Rocks award from Blacker Orthodontics.

My Teacher Rocks is a monthly award given to a patient’s teacher who is doing an exceptional job. Wood was awarded a dinner and a movie certificate.

During the homecoming junior varsity/varsity boys and girls basketball games, the culinary arts students hosted a tailgate fundraiser to assist with purchasing supplies for their classes through the remainder of the school year.

Students made hamburger and hotdogs, and each plate was sold for $5.
