Seniors cheer during the 2017 Homecoming Pepfest.

Senior year is all about living in the moment. With every day passing by, seniors savor their last time participating in the fun activities and events at BSM. The last homecoming week is one of the most bittersweet of these events.

One of the most memorable moments for some seniors was the tradition of pictures on the BSM turf. This event gave the senior class the opportunity to band together instead of separating into their usual groups. “It was really cool seeing all of my senior classmates taking pictures together. It just shows our incredible bond,” senior Sarah Hansberry said.

Another favorite part about the week was all the excitement at the dance itself. Many seniors reflected on the energy that came along with their last homecoming dance. “[This] homecoming was more fun than all the other ones. Although it was sad to be our last one, it was the best one,” senior Cole Knickelbine said.

Throughout the week, students participated in many different activities and dressed up for the daily theme. Many students enjoyed the change in routine that these activities brought.“My favorite part about homecoming was switching up our routine days—we all came together and had a ton of fun with Powder Puff. R.I.P. to boys’ volleyball, but it was still fun even when the power went out,” senior Julia Duda said. 

After last year’s pep fest incident when the speakers blew out right in the middle of the boys dance, this year’s pep fest proved to be a crowd favorite. “I loved emceeing. I thought the pep fest went very smoothly, and most people seemed to be in good spirits afterward. The homecoming football game was icing on the cake,” senior Eric Weber said.

Overall, this past homecoming week was regarded as one of the best so far by many seniors. It was a time when people came together and everyone comes together to celebrate our common BSM school spirit. “I will miss the pep fest and energy of Homecoming week for sure. It’s a different dynamic during the week and it’s really special here,” Weber said.
