Homecoming Court Process Gets A Makeover

Homecoming Court nominations replaced by applications

By Shirley Lin

The 2012 Homecoming Court process has changed from the prior year’s. This year, instead of
having students in their advisories nominate the court members, those who would like to be on
Homecoming Court had to submit an application available in the student union. “The usual
Homecoming process takes six weeks,” ASB advisor Mr. Ryan Willer said, “but due to time
constraints as school started later this year, we had to reduce it to four weeks to fit the schedule.” He also said that later this year, ASB will look back in retrospect to improve the Homecoming Court process for next year.

“Personally, I love the nominations,” senior class president Shane Lamba said in response to the
new process. “I get to feel appreciated and noticed on campus. The chosen court members know that they are making a difference. And It’s like a self-esteem boost, knowing that I am one of the 500 who was nominated. That means people care about what I do for the school.”
