Homecoming: Prelude to Report Card Week

Langston University

This week is Homecoming for many high schools, colleges and universities. From miles around, alumni and recent graduates venture back to their social and academic birthplace. My nephews play football for First Baptist Academy in Dallas and both teams won their respective games. I miss the pageantry. Matched against opponents that would guarantee the home team a win, concentration can be placed on other important task besides winning the football game. Crowning the Homecoming Queen and the band’s half time show are usually the highlights of the Homecoming Game…regardless of how the football game turned out. More importantly, the week’s priority becomes who’s taking who and who’s wearing what to the Homecoming Dance the following night.
