For Friday of Homecoming Week, the hallways were overflowing with students sporting their crimson and gold. After sorting through the mix of football jerseys, painted faces, and Fairbury shirts, student council judges decided the winners for ‘Jeff Pride’ day. First place went to Jed Martin, second place went to Paige Nippert, third place went to Haylee Gray, and fourth place went to Paul and Leah Mach.
Thursday of Spirit Week was ‘redneck day’ for FHS students! After careful deliberation, Student Council judges decided on several winners who all went above and beyond for the day. First place was Chase Dragoo, second place was Macy Ohlde, Destini Warnke, and RJ Suey, third place was Emily Burkley, and fourth place was Paige Nippert.
Wednesday was ‘Suns Out Guns Out’ at Fairbury High School; dozens of students came to school sporting their favorite bro-tanks and tank tops! Rielee Achtemeier won third place, Andrew Novotny won second, and Colton Starck won first.
Tuesday of Homecoming Week was full of fanatics, spirit, and sports gear for Fairbury High school. Student Council judges carefully decided the winners for the “America’s Favorite Pastime” spirit day, and after much deliberation awarded Taylor Runge ’20 fourth place, Haylee Gray ’17 third place, Autumn Branson ’19 second place, and seniors Lilibeth Estrada and Shaye Stall first place and the spirit stick for a joint costume worthy of a touchdown.
Homecoming week started off with a blast here at FHS! On Monday, September 19, the spirit day was ‘American Day’, and students were encouraged to wear their most patriotic clothing to school. After evaluation by StuCo judges, three winners were decided. Third place went to Haylee Gray ’17, second to Justin Peterson ’17, and first place went to Jolie Scott ’18. Along with a celebratory popsicle, Scott was also trusted with the spirit stick for the entire school day.
