The Roosevelt High School community celebrated homecoming Friday night with a parade, crowning of a king and queen, class spirit awards and a football victory.
It was a cold, rainy evening, but the weather didn’t dampen spirits of the students, alumni, parents or anyone else who took part in the festivities.
The Wyandotte Marching Chiefs led the parade, which began at the Wyandotte Board of Education offices and ended at Roosevelt. The parade featured members of each class carrying their homecoming banner entry, as well as the cheerleading squad and members of the group Students Against Drunk Driving.
Miss Michigan 2013 Jaclyn Schultz, a 2006 Roosevelt grad, was on hand at halftime of the football game to help crown the homecoming king and queen. Divon Robinson was named king and Spencer Genrich took the honor of queen.
Also during halftime, the class of 2016 won both the award for best banner and the homecoming spirit week award.
On the football field, the Bears bounced back from a tough loss last week and treated fans to a 35-7 win against Gibraltar Carlson.
To end the night, alumni and members of the community celebrated at the annual Wyandotte Homecoming Social, which was held at the Wyandotte Boat Club and sponsored by the RHS Alumni Football Club.
The homecoming dance was held Saturday night and the theme this year was board games.
