With the theme of Montana Proud, it was an action packed Homecoming Week in Whitehall.

The Homecoming Royalty was announced during halftime of the Whitehall High School football team's 29-14 win over rival Jefferson County High School, with senior Wyatt Alexander being named King and Cami Learn being named the queen. The prince was Colby Smith and the princess was Madison Loomis. Mike Wilkinson and Meagan Johnson were named the King and Queen's attendants.

The freshman royalty was Mason Alexander, Johnson, Tegan Robbins and Katie Whitehurst. The sophomore royalty was Patyon King, Loomis, Wilkinson and Britney Welker. The junior royalty was Cade Briggs, Allee Scafani, Smith and Karlie Wagner. The senior royalty was Alexander, Learn, Kayden Howser, Amber Murrish, Garrison Shaw, Zoe Center, Braden Smith and Timber Baceski.

Whitehall teacher, athletic director, and head football coach Dan Lacey said he always looks forward to Homecoming week.

"I think it's a really good week to bring staff and the students together. The parents also do a great job of getting involved in the festivities," he said.

The parade was once again a huge hit with Superintendent John Sullivan announcing the floats as they made their way down Legion Avenue.

There were many themes for the floats including "Class of '24" for sixth grade, "Here Kitty Kitty" for seventh grade, "Class of 22" for eighth grade, "Bringing Back School Pride" for the cheerleaders, "Roast the Panthers" for Harrison High School, "Tank Em" for the sophomores, "We Still Stand" for the junior class and "Hunt the Panthers" for the senior class. It was a great week of participation for the fifth grade class of Kristen Wirth. Her students collected the most during the all-school food drive and won the elementary school spirit poster contest.
