Students thank community for all its support

White River High School’s 2011 Homecoming was one of the most profound events the Buckley community has seen in a long time. The combined effort among the students, administration and staff allowed this short week in October to be more than just your average Homecoming. It all started with the spirit week creating an atmosphere buzzing with excitement for the upcoming weekend. Students sporting crazy outfits topped with genuine smiles were seen walking down the hallways. Nominations were submitted for Homecoming royalty and soon a ballot was produced. When the process was finally said and done, White River was more than proud to announce their first autistic Homecoming king.

The start of the 2011 school year has already marked a change in White River’s culture. Our school theme, “The Hornet Way,” consists of acceptance, pride and appreciation. These are now the core values exhibited every day in the life of a Hornet.  Homecoming has proved that this year will be one of the most spirited, positive and involved years, and we are only in the second month! The students of White River are proud of the magnitude of support not only from our administration, but from within our community. The Homecoming game was overflowing with supportive locals, there to cheer on our boys. The charged energy added another win to our undefeated league record.

White River is proud of everyone and would like to thank all for making Homecoming such a memorable and heartwarming experience.
