IHS 2023-2024 Homecoming Court 


As the 2023-2024 school year settles down for the year, the first major event for the student body is rolling into play. IHS homecoming theme for this year is Gardens of Glamour. Tickets are being sold in the school store during all lunches and tenth period. Single tickets are $10 and $20 for couples.

Along with other years, 2023-2024 Homecoming Court consists of ten wonderful Seniors. For Homecoming Queen, the nominees consist of Grace Cook, Tess Kuzneski, Emma Masengale, Brynlee Schawl, and Kyla Weaver. The nominees for Homecoming King include Ben Cochran, Maddox Duffee, Kadin Homer, Hunter Martin, and John Trevorrow.

The king will be announced at the pep-rally on Friday. The queen will be announced at the football game, Friday September 29th. During halftime at the game, students will have the opportunity to buy cups of colorful chalk. Students will then throw the chalk in the air as a form of celebration as the queen is revealed.

Ben Cochran, captain of the football team and one of the five nominees, stated, “It is an honor to be nominated by my class for court. I wish best of luck to everyone else on the court and thank you to everyone who has voted for me.”

Many of the students on court are involved with the school community. Emma Masengale spends her time dancing at Sue Hewitt Dance Studio, playing lacrosse, and leading different clubs at IHS.

Masengale expressed, “I am super excited to be on court with all these amazing seniors with me. Thank you to everyone for this opportunity and I believe that everyone on the court deserves to be here. Happy homecoming season!”

Everyone on court are busy seniors that still managed to leave an impact on the school community. These seniors have full schedules but never fail to continue to help create a positive school experience for everyone.
